Back To Health Physical Therapy’s “Therapy at Home” services are covered by Medicare Part B – providing Outpatient Physical and Occupational Therapy in the home, instead of in a clinic. We also work with many other insurance companies, secondary insurances, and private pay.

We are not a traditional “Homecare Agency” –  covered by Medicare Part A, which is applicable only for home-bound status patients.

Many of our patients receive our “Therapy at Home” program after they have completed their Part A, homecare agency, therapy program and are ready to begin outpatient therapy. To clarify the difference between Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B:

MEDICARE PART A MEDICARE PART B
THERAPY SERVICES TRADITIONAL “HOME CARE” (including Nursing, Home Health Aides, and Therapy) OUTPATIENT TREATMENT AT YOUR HOME (Physical and Occupational Therapy)
REQUIREMENTS MUST HAVE “HOME BOUND” STATUS CONFIRMED BY A PHYSICIAN NO HOME BOUND STATUS REQUIRED, SAME REQUIREMENTS AS A TRADITIONAL OUTPATIENT CLINIC
GOALS RECOVER FROM HOSPITAL STAY AND/OR ELIMINATE HOME BOUND STATUS INCREASE QUALITY OF LIFE, FUNCTION, STRENGTH, AND INDEPENDENCE IN ADDITION TO PREVENTION OF FALLS OR OTHER HAZARDS

They just make work a pleasure.

Michelle Ribustello,

I came to Back to Health in 2015 from a skilled nursing facility and it's been great being able to work with my patients in their home, helping them in their own environment. It's much more rewarding to be able to see them function independently by the time you are finished with them and they are discharged. Working for Back to Health has also been great. I am a new mom so scheduling has been phenomenal. Your patients are very flexible, the office is super flexible, and they just make work a pleasure.

It feels so good to love my job each and every day!

Jodi McLean,

Back to Health gives me the opportunity to see patients in the clinic setting and in their homes. I love the connection I am able to make with my patients and their families as they welcome me into their homes. This is the most flexible, rewarding, stress-free job anyone could ever ask for as an occupational therapist. It feels so good to love my job each and every day!

Back To Health is the best PT job that I have ever had.

Patricia Verdote,

Back To Health is the best PT job that I have ever had. I am able to treat the patients the way that I want to treat, the way that I believe will be the best level of care for the patient in their own environment. I helped one patient learn how to get up off of their favorite chair in their living room – and that is not something that I have ever had the chance to do before!

You couldn't ask for anything better.

Melissa Stawinski,

I feel really lucky to be able to work for Back to Health Physical Therapy. It's allowed me to really tap into why I became an OT in the first place. Working in people's homes, in their environment, identifying what's meaningful to them, and helping them achieve their goals; you couldn't ask for anything better.

It is such a fun time and I look forward to working with you!

Jill Chroback,

The reason I love working for Back to Health is not only for working with such a wonderful staff, we have some great therapists and administrators working here, but also working with patients in their own environment so we are able to do a lot in actual situations and we have seen some great progress. It is such a fun time and I look forward to working with you!

This has been the best, professional, ethical group I have ever worked with.

Diane Hennion,

I have been working for Back to Health for three years now and out of my whole career, this has been the best, professional, ethical group I have ever worked with. They are friendly, warm and very intent on providing the best outcome and care for their individual clients.

I honestly look forward to "going to work" with Back to Health.

Stephanie Spada,

I love working at Back to Health as it allows me the flexibility to be both a hands-on involved mom to an amazing six-year-old little boy as well as a working professional. I am able to provide quality one-on-one quality care to my patient's in the comfort of their own home. I honestly look forward to "going to work" with Back to Health. They are a caring, dedicated group of special people who truly want the best for their patients!!

The flexibility is priceless to me.

Jill Friedbauer,

It was very difficult for me to find a PT position where I could send my kids off to school in the morning and to also be home to greet them when they come home in the afternoon. That flexibility is priceless to me. My patients have made a tremendous level of progress – even more than I have seen in clinical environments – which is really rewarding. I love working with Back To Health so much that I have referred clinicians that I have worked with in the past to join their team!

The most emotional and financially rewarding position that I have ever had.

Yvette Jain-Nafpliotis,

I have been working with Back To Health since 2006 and it has been the most emotional and financially rewarding position that I have ever had. The patients are so grateful for the services and I truly can see their progress in a very direct way.
