Now Offering Outpatient Therapy Services
Westover Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center is a Skilled Nursing Facility that specializes in inpatient therapy, outpatient therapy, and long-term care. Our outpatient therapy program is designed for those individuals who may not require inpatient therapy but would benefit from physical, occupational, or speech therapy. For more information, please call us at 210-546-CARE (2273). We’re here to answer any questions you may have about our outpatient program, but here are some of the most frequently asked questions:
What is outpatient therapy?
Outpatient therapy is a program designed to provide therapy to those who would benefit from therapy 1-5 days per week. Whether it’s physical, occupational, or speech therapy, or all three, an individualized plan can be tailored to your specific needs.
How do I qualify?
All you need is a doctor’s order. If you suffer from pain, specifically joint pain, you would be a great candidate for outpatient therapy. You may also qualify if you have general weakness, decreased balance and mobility, recent surgery, increased difficulty in performing activities of daily living (getting dressed, showering, toileting, etc.). You may also qualify for speech therapy if you are having difficulty eating, speaking, or swallowing.
How much therapy would I receive?
Therapy will be based up your doctor’s recommendations as well as your specific clinical needs. Depending on those needs, you could receive therapy 1 to 5 times per week and around 45 minutes to an hour for each discipline (physical, occupational, and speech therapy).
What insurances do you accept?
Currently, we accept Medicare (part B) and some insurances. Since we are adding insurances, please contact us to see if we accept your specific insurance.
Does Medicare pay for outpatient therapy?
Yes. Medicare does pay for outpatient services under its Part B program. We can check that for you if you are not sure if you are enrolled in the Part B program. Medicare Part B covers outpatient therapy at 80% of the costs associated with your specific therapy program. When we customize a plan for you, we can give you a projected estimate before you even start therapy to let you know what your specific out-of-pocket costs would be.
What differentiates us from other outpatient providers?
Flexibility and creativity. We understand that schedules have to be flexible when it comes to providing these services. Therefore, we work around your schedule. We provide outpatient services Monday thru Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm but are willing to work around your schedule as to what works best.
