Elite Home Visits
Elite Integrated Therapy Centers offers physical, occupational and speech therapy services in the home and in assisted-living facility settings. Our home visits are offered to anyone in the Upstate area with no restrictions or extra costs. It is billed exactly as if you are in the clinic with us, and there are no guidelines that need to be met to qualify for in-home treatment. This program also serves as an effective home health discharge plan reducing re-hospitalization/readmission rates for vulnerable patient populations.
Who Qualifies for Elite Home Visits?
Anyone and everyone! There are no limitations on who can receive these services. In contrast to home health, we bill Medicare Part B rather than Part A. Therefore, there are no additional fees or qualifications. Your copay will be dependent upon your insurance. We will also pre-verify your benefits before your first appointment so there are no surprises.
Those Who Benefit the Most
That said, this program is more beneficial to some more than others. We strongly encourage patients to attend their therapy sessions in the clinic. However, we realize that is not feasible for everyone so we wanted to bridge that gap.
Our home visit services are ideal for those who:
- Are immunocompromised or have a respiratory condition at this time.
- Are home-bound.
- Have transportation issues.
- Reside far from healthcare facilities.
If you fall into one of these categories, Elite home visits would be a great option for your physical, occupational and/or speech therapy needs. Our goal is to help you live your best, pain-free life.
Physical Therapy vs. Occupational Therapy vs. Speech Therapy
Physical, occupational and speech therapy all mutually focus on targeted tasks and problem solving to promote success in the home environment. However, each one can then be further broken down into assisting with the following objectives:
- Physical Therapy: functional mobility, rehabilitation, assistive device utilization and balance.
- Occupational Therapy: activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, driving), returning to work and fall prevention.
- Speech Therapy: speech & language, cognition (memory, problem solving, safety), feeding/swallowing, fluency and voice disorders.
Treatment methods vary dependent upon your specific needs and goals. Your doctor may refer you for one of these services. You may also call us personally to schedule your appointment – no referral necessary! We will continue to keep your primary care physician updated with your progress throughout treatment.
What to Expect
Now that you have made your appointment, what can you expect?
We provide you with a two hour window in which we will arrive at your house and will call you the day of when we are on the way. Upon arrival, we will review your insurance information, as well as some general paperwork. The first part of your evaluation will be spent discussing your medical history, symptoms and goals. Various tests will be performed to determine your functional capabilities and limitations. Your results are then used to create a unique, individualized treatment program. We will work closely alongside you, helping you achieve your goals and measuring your success along the way.
In addition to these services, our in-home speech language pathologists can also help during this time for those who have suddenly become tasked with being an at home educator, which includes special education services. Our therapists can help bridge the gap and prevent regression. We are able to work with all ages, including infants, children and adolescents.
For Your Convenience
We accept most commercial insurances, Medicaid, Medicare and offer private pay services/payment plans. We are happy to work around your schedule to find a time most convenient for you. Our goal is to assist you as best we can during this unprecedented time. Continuing progress in therapy prevents regression or worsened symptoms of pain or injury, which is why we have chosen to remain available to those who need us the most. We are continuing to treat in the clinics, as well, and going above and beyond all CDC and WHO safety guidelines.
