If you are using your health insurance benefits, then a medical provider’s referral (MD, PA, NP) is required.
All initial visits will include the following:
- Paperwork processing such as HIPAA, benefits, and payments, and patient authorization
- Discussion including detailed medical history and reason for current referral.
- Individualized evaluation of client.
- Assessment of home environment and patient’s function in the home.

Medicare covers 80% of all outpatient therapy services including mobile therapy. Many people have secondary insurance that will cover the additional 20%. Essential Quality Therapy will verify your total insurance benefit upfront and inform you of any out-of-pocket costs before the first visit.
After your initial evaluation, the therapist will determine how many times per week and how long each session will be.
