Telehealth at Beth Shelly Physical Therapy

Professional resources for pelvic PT telehealth

The health and safety of our patients is always our top priority.  Currently Beth is only providing  physical therapy services by telehealth. 

Can I receive therapy via telehealth?  Most conditions can be treated in part through telehealth.  Discuss your specific condition with Beth to determine if telehealth is possible for you.

It is necessary to sign a Telehealth consent form. Please type in your name and date, save it, and email back to Beth. - beth@bethshelly.com

What if I am a new patient?  Please contact Beth directly to receive information about paperwork that must be completed before your first visit.

Here is a video showing you how to check in to the virtual waiting room.

What if I do not have a computer or web cam?  During the COVID 19 pandemic it is possible to connect on video call via FaceTime (on an Apple device) or WhatsApp (on an android device).  Video is best for telehealth.  If none of those devices are available, it is possible to use the phone only.

Will insurance pay for PT telehealth?Insurance coverage is changing rapidly. Wellmark, BCBS of IL, and Medicare have pledged to pay for PT telehealth visits. It is also possible that your Medicare replacement (United) will pay for these services. However, this is changing daily and I am watching closely.

What is the fee if insurance does not pay? More about the self pay rate is found on the "for patients" page. The initial evaluation is $128 and subsequent visits are $96. 

Don’t let this virus slow your therapy progress
