Please feel free to call us anytime with any questions you may have or to schedule your initial evaluation.
Patients may be seen at Burlington Physical Therapy with or without a written referral for physical therapy. Many insurance companies, however, require a written referral and/or pre-authorization for payment of physical therapy services. We are a preferred provider for most insurances, including, but not limited to Premera Blue Cross, Regence Blue Shield, Group Health Options, United Healthcare, Medicare, Labor and Industries claims, DSHS, and motor vehicle PIP coverage. Please be prepared to give our receptionist your insurance information. We will make every effort to verify your benefits before treatment begins. If you have both a primary and a secondary insurance, we will bill both for you.
How to schedule an appointment:
At Burlington Physical Therapy we do our best to accommodate same-day appointments if needed. In most cases, we will be able to schedule your initial visit within 24 hours of your call. We accept most insurance plans, and private-pay arrangements are also available.
Before your first visit:
Please download and complete our patient registration and consent forms and then bring them to your first visit to our clinic. You may also fax the form to us at (360) 757-9019.

What to expect at your first visit:
On your first visit, you should arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment time to complete the patient registration and consent forms, if you have not already done so.
Please bring your insurance card, your prescription for physical therapy, and any notes or reports from your physician that describes your condition. We also encourage you to bring any x-rays or other test results that your physician may have given you.
Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothes to allow access to the affected area (e.g. shorts, t-shirt, sports bra, etc.).
Plan for the session to last one hour. Your past medical and current injury history will be taken and a physical examination will be performed to determine the nature and severity of the injury or symptoms. The exam will be followed by education on the current diagnosis, prognosis and a home exercise program.
