Rehab services are offered at GHBC through Flagship Rehabilitation and include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. In addition to physical and occupational therapists, Rehab has a speech pathologist who works with residents on cognitive issues and problems with swallowing. The Rehab department is located on the first floor of the Health Center near the Clinic. The extension is 7267, and it is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Service can be initiated with a physician’s order. Verification of insurance is then obtained by the Goodwin House billing department; this usually can be done in 24-48 hours. Once verification is obtained, the rehab manager will contact the resident to schedule an evaluation appointment.
Residents on HCC not receiving Medicare A coverage may receive rehab services as needed provided under Medicare Part B or secondary insurance.
If insurance will not pay the total cost of the proposed treatment plan or if the resident has reached the Medicare Part B cap on benefits for the year, the resident will be notified and will have the choice to continue therapy on a private pay basis. Concerns or issues about charges for rehab therapies can be addressed to the Medical Claims office on the first floor, next to the Resident Business Office, ext. 7216.
