Your First Appointment
Your First Appointment to Self Care Therapy consists of:
- An evaluation including a review of your health history
- A list of problems that can benefit from therapy
- Treatment goals
- A treatment plan
- An estimated time table for achieving these goals.
Medicare part B covers 80% of the treatment cost after your yearly deductible is met. If you have secondary insurance it may cover the other 20%. Be aware that some secondary insurance plans have co-pays or yearly deductibles.
We accept most private insurance. Please refer to your insurance plan for coverage of Outpatient Occupational Therapy Services. Unfortunately Medicaid in NC does not cover Outpatient Occupational Therpay services.
The cost of the compression bandages for Lymphedema is not covered by Medicare or most insurance plans. Your cost will depend on amount of material used but often ranges between $100 -$200.
After completed treatment you will need compression garments to prevent the return of swelling. The cost of compression stockings, arm sleeves and gloves are not covered by Medicare or most insurance plans. We will assist you in fitting for and ordering the garment.
