Prescription Process

What does it take to get started? Here’s the process.


  • How do I become a client at Life Beyond Barriers Rehabilitation Group?

    Starting therapy requires a physician’s prescription. The prescription must be signed and dated by the referring physician. It also needs to include a diagnosis, discipline (PT, OT, Speech, etc.), and an ICD 10 code for each discipline ordered. For quick, confidential service, please fax the prescription to the scheduling office.

  • What should I bring to my first visit?

    Plan on arriving 15 minutes before your appointment. This allows us to complete any required paperwork. You should also bring: your insurance card, a photo ID, a list of current medications, and any other information that’s been requested.

  • What should I wear?

    You should wear comfortable clothing. Sneakers are also recommended, along with an extra set of clothing.

  • What diagnoses do you treat?

    We treat clients who have experienced a catastrophic neurological diagnosis – traumatic and non-traumatic – including spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, amputation, and brachial plexus injury. We also treat neurological diagnoses such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and ALS.

  • What types of insurances do you accept?

    We accept all insurance plans: Commercial insurance (Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Priority Health), Auto No-fault, Worker’s Compensation, Medicare, and Medicaid.

  • How does the therapists know my rehab goals?

    Your goals are established, together, from the very first meeting. We monitor the progress of these goals along your journey and revisit them every single session.

  • How are you different from other rehabilitation programs?

    We don’t treat people like a diagnosis. We treat the person, always putting their dreams and goals ahead of systems and protocol. Our program also has a unique culture. We’re not patients and therapists. We’re friends, peers, supporters, collaborators, and encouragers. Simply put, it’s hard to come by a culture that’s so relationship-oriented.
