First Visit

What shall I bring for my first visit?

•Your current insurance card, any prescription/referral slips for therapy from your physician’s office.
•List of medications that you are currently taking.
•Completed patient registration, consent, and medical history form.


What should I wear?

•Loose comfortable clothing (ie: shorts, athletic pants, t-shirt).


Do I need a referral to come to you? And what is an “authorization?”

•Colorado is considered a “direct access” state where patients may refer themselves to Physical Therapy without a doctor’s referral (or prescription). However, your insurance policy may require a doctor’s referral or authorization.
•If your insurance policy is an HMO plan, the insurance company generally requires an authorization for you to see any specialist. Your “Primary Care Physician” (PCP) will often do the authorization for therapy.
•If you are unsure, please call us. We do provide a courtesy to you in checking your benefits prior to your therapy visit (If you would like us to check your benefits we would need your insurance information prior to your visit).


Do you bill my insurance?

•Yes, as a courtesy to our patients we will bill your primary insurance. If a balance is due from you we accept check, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and Debit cards.


What if I don’t have any Health Insurance?

•If you do not have any Health Insurance, we can offer a self-pay discount. Please contact our office (970-460-0066 Johnstown/Loveland/Windsor or 970-568-8461 Fort Collins) for more information.


Seriously, I walked in limping with a brace on my first day, and left feeling wonderful, and I kept improving after each visit!!! The exercises and attention from the therapists (Kelsey and Jamie) have helped me tremendously, which has enabled me to become more active than I have in a few years. I am truly grateful for their professionalism and attention to my individual need!! I’m HIGHLY recommend them!!

I had postpartum hip issue when I first came into RMPT. I’ve had physical therapy before but never believed in it. This time Jason took over my case and after 12 sessions I am back to 100%. Thank you so much for taking such great care of me. (Fort Collins-Central Clinic)
