I've helped hundreds of patients with spinal, hip, knee, neck and shoulder pain over my 23 of being a Physical Therapist. And I know I can help you too. Yes, Medicare will pay for your Physical Therapy after a total knee replacement, a total hip replacement, shoulder surgery or spinal surgery.

It also pays for your Physical Therapy for back pain, hip or knee arthritis, neck pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and so on and so forth. It will pay for many things pre surgery and after surgery.

So, how eligible are you?

1. You need to be 65 years old, and you need to no longer be working to have Medicare.

2. You'll need to obtain a doctor’s referral for Physical Therapy that is no later than 10 days after your initial evaluation. So, we can evaluate you, start the process, then send a note to your doctor and we need that sign back within 10 days.

3. Then last, your financial responsibility will typically be around $20 a session, Medicare will pick up the rest. And if you have a secondary plan, they will pick up the $20. We found that about 10% of Medicare patients don't have a secondary plan and the rest do. So that means 90% of Medicare folks doesn’t for any of the services.
