The latest updates on COVID-19
Dear Beloved Patients and Physicians,
We hope you are all hanging in there during this difficult time. The world we find ourselves in is not our prototypical world, yet we’ve witnessed such compassion and heartfelt care by those who find themselves on the front lines. From doctors and nurses to grocery clerks to delivery drivers, there is an abundance of what we’re doing right for each other.
We thought you’d like to know what we are doing for the many who’ve relied on Therapy Specialists for therapy services. As we mentioned in an earlier post, due to COVID -19, we have closed our pediatric outpatient clinic and much of our adult clinic business except for some critical care hand and physical therapy patients. This was solely done to protect the health of our patients as well as our staff. It was a painstaking decision, but until we can open our clinic doors again, we’ve come up with an alternative in order to continue the progress that had been gained before our clinic doors closed.
Today, I’d like to share we have begun seeing many of these existing patients via telehealth services. This began last week, and we’ve been encouraged by its success. So far, Tricare, Anthem, United Healthcare, Community Health Group, Medicare, Cigna, VA, and Blue Shield are just a few insurances that cover telehealth and/or e-visits. We hope to be able to offer it to new patients in the coming days/weeks and will keep you updated on those efforts. Please know we are thinking of you and are here for you in any way we can.
