How do I become a patient?
There are a few ways to become a patient!
- Give us a call! We can assist with obtaining a referral, if needed, and help you set up an appointment.
- Ask your doctor to send us a prescription/referral for PT to (833) 525 – 1855. Make sure that your contact information is included in the referral so we know how to reach you!
What happens during my first visit?
When your therapist arrives at your home for your first visit, your physical therapist will conduct a full-body movement assessment to test your strength, flexibility and balance as well as to observe functional movements that you complete on a daily basis. These tests and measures will serve as a baseline to ensure that you are progressing appropriately throughout your plan of care!
Based on your testing results, your physical therapist will design an individualized plan of care to address any physical dysfunctions, improve your symptoms, and educate you about your condition. At Revolution Physical Therapy & Wellness, we strive to provide a patient-centered treatment approach that is fully individualized and focused on your goals to help you take an active role in your recovery.
Please also have the following information available at your first session:
-Insurance cards (if applicable)
-Referral from your doctor (if available)
What do I wear at my first session?
Try to wear something comfortable and easy to move in, such as shorts and a t-shirt and tennis shoes.
How long do the sessions last?
At your first visit, the session will be approximately 1 hour and treatment will begin on the first day. Additionally, your physical therapist may assign “homework” or exercises/activities to complete between sessions. These will be sent electronically to the email address you provide on your paperwork. Follow up visits typically are 45 minutes to 1 hour long each.
Do you take my insurance?
We are able to accept Traditional Medicare, many Medicare Advantage plans and most supplemental plans. We are able to bill “Out of Network” for clients who do not have insurance plans that we currently accept.
If you are unsure what type of insurance you currently have, please reach out! We would be happy to help determine your coverage!
Do I need a doctor’s referral?
It is helpful to have a doctor’s referral as many insurance plans require it to pay for your sessions. We can request one from your doctor for you or you can have a copy when your therapist arrives. Additionally, you can ask your doctor to fax us a copy to (833) 525 – 1855.

Mobile PT vs Home Health PT
So, what’s the difference?
Home health physical therapy is billed through Medicare Part A, while Revolution PT bills through Medicare Part B. For home health services to be completed, the patient is required to be “homebound,” meaning unable to leave the home except for important doctor’s appointments, etc. Home health is often used when a patient first comes home after being in the hospital or being very sick/injured, requiring more frequent assistance to move around their home. Home health is also typically more than just PT – many times Occupational Therapy (OT), Speech Therapy (ST) and nursing may come to the patient’s home to assist, as the patient is not able to leave their home.
Mobile PT (how Revolution PT operates) does NOT require the patient to be homebound! The therapy sessions are billed just like an outpatient clinic would, except in the patient’s home. The patient receives all the benefits of an outpatient clinic, but in the comfort of their own home with tailored 1-on-1 care with a doctor of physical therapy… and no transportation required!
One important distinction we would like to note is that home health services (of any kind) and our mobile outpatient PT services cannot occur at the same time. If you are unsure if this applies to you, please reach out to us for help clarifying!
