Getting Physical Therapy in Rhea County Can Save You Money!
Whether you are recovering from knee surgery, learning to cope with arthritis, or dealing with a workplace injury, chances
are physical therapy can help. However, many people shy away from getting the physical therapy they need because they have heard that there is a Medicare Therapy Cap that places a limit on outpatient rehabilitation services covered by Medicare. (In 2006, the therapy cap was nearly $2,000!)
The good news is that this Medicare Therapy Cap does not apply to Rhea Medical Center! Because the government considers Rhea Medical Center a rural hospital, special provisions are made to make physical therapy more affordable. Patients who choose Professional Therapy Services in Rhea County will be unaffected by the cap.
Therapy services are available to people of any age, pediatric through geriatric, who have physical or cognitive deficits. Inpatient therapy is available at the hospital, and outpatient therapy is available at our outpatient location, 188 16th Avenue, in the Richland Park Shopping Center, across the parking lot from Shop Rite.
Physical and occupational therapy is also delivered in the intermediate care environment of Rhea Nursing Home.
