    FAQ

    For Additional Questions Please Contact Us

    What is physical therapy?

    Physical Therapy is a health care profession that treats individuals of all ages who have medical problems or other health related conditions that limit their abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. The physical therapist examines each individual and develops a plan using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability. In addition, Physical Therapists work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness and wellness oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.

    Do I need a physician referral to receive therapy?

    We operate in a direct access state where, if your insurance plan authorizes self-referral to physical therapy, a physician referral is not necessary for you to be seen by a licensed therapist. Please check with your insurance though as many health insurance plans require a physician’s referral for therapy to be covered. We also offer treatments, services and/or products that do NOT require a referral and are available on a self-pay basis.

    Will my insurance company cover physical therapy?

    Most insurance companies pay for physical therapy. However, amounts paid and number of visits allowed are highly variable and depend on the policies of your carrier. Please contact your insurance company or one of our centers for assistance with insurance questions.

    How much will I owe for each session?

    Many insurance companies require a co-pay that you are responsible for paying at the time of service. We accept cash, check, debit, and major credit cards for a co-pay or service not covered by your insurance plan at one of our centers.

    Please check with your insurance company or insurance card to determine your co-pay. You may also have a deductible and a percentage allocation amount required by your insurance company. Again, please refer to your policy to determine the amount you may owe or contact one of our centers so we may assist you.

    Does your facility submit claims to my insurance company?

    As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.

    In Preparation:

    Please dress comfortably for your appointments. You will be required to complete the new patient paperwork, which can be filled out prior to your initial appointment. You should arrive approximately 10 minutes early to be ready for your appointment time with your therapist.

    First Clinical Visit

    After your consultation, you can also expect a thorough, interactive evaluation from a Licensed Therapist in order to establish a customized treatment plan that will assist you in meeting your functional goals. During this evaluation you will have the opportunity to discuss your condition, help set goals for your therapy, and gain a good understanding of what you may expect from attending physical therapy visits including prognosis, treatment interventions and approximately how long it should take. At the end of the first treatment, you should receive a copy of your home exercises followed by a quick check out process. Initial visits typically last about 90 minutes.

    Follow up visits:

    On all follow up visits, you simply sign in at the desk in the lobby and expect to wait no longer than 5 minutes for a qualified therapist to assist you to the treatment area. From here you will continue your treatment progression. Follow up visits typically last 30-60 minutes.

    Follow Up and Customer Service

    Customer service is an important part of our mission at Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers. Please communicate with us on ways we can improve so that we may continue to provide the highest quality of rehabilitation services possible! Please feel free to complete a Patient Satisfaction Survey Form letting us know how we did, or email us at wecare@afptc.com

    Do you only treat professional athletes?

    No, we are open to all athletes and non-athletes, from youth to seniors.

    How do I schedule Appointments

    Please call your local center or (404) 367-2200 to schedule an appointment. We strive to schedule an appointment for you within 24 hours.

    Who decides where I go for therapy?

    You have a right to your choice of which Physical Therapy company you select. However, your insurance may have contracts with certain centers so please call us so we can verify your coverage.

    Can I request a female or male therapist?

    Yes, based on availability at the particular center.
