Peggy Zidar Treseler, PT, MA
Where do I park? Is parking FREE?
Parking is free and ample. Our address: 7825 Tuckerman Lane, Suite 211. The entrance is directly across from Gregoria Trattoria Restaurant and Dunkin Donuts. Enter the glass door, proceed to the elevators or stairs – we are in Suite 211 shared with ASPIRE PT.
NOTE: The building entrance is on the far end on the mall – to the right as you face the Giant Grocery store & Starbucks- with your back to Tuckerman Lane.
What should I bring with me to my appointment?
• Completed forms
• Prescription if you received one from your physician, any recent tests or surgical reports, bladder diaries or any pertinent documents that you may help the therapist.
• Payment for your visit.
Do I need a prescription?
We do not require a prescription for treatment. Your insurance company, however, may require it for reimbursement.
Although in the state of Maryland, you have access to an assessment and treatment by a physical therapist without a physician’s referral, problems with bladder, bowel, sexual function and pelvic pain should be evaluated by your medical doctor.
Should I bring anyone with me?
All visits are confidential and private. You can choose to have another person present, your choice. We welcome spouses, chaperones/ and or partners to come to treatments if you wish. IF YOU DO BRING SOMEONE TO THE VISIT, THEY WILL BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE THE COVID SCREEN.
Should I cancel if I have my period?
Generally, NO. Yet if you suffer from heavy flows or cramps, you may feel more comfortable rescheduling.
Do you accept my insurance?
No, I am an “out of network” licensed physical therapist. I am not a preferred provider for any insurance; I am not a Medicare provider.
This independence and flexibility allows the therapist to spend more time with each patient. Being out-of network allows the physical therapist to practice without the insurance companies dictating the quality of care that we provide to our patients at Specialized Women’s Physical Therapy.
I do not bill insurance. Payment is due at the time of service. I will provide you with a receipt (with billings and diagnosis codes) that you can submit to your insurance company, health saving account or flexible savings plan.
NOTE: Most insurance companies do reimburse or cover a percentage of your physical therapy visits. We suggest you contact your insurance companies prior to your visit if you plan to submit for reimbursement; some require pre-certification or pre-authorization before your initial consultation.
When you call your insurance company - Questions to ask:
What percentage of reimbursement do you have? (60%, 80%, 90%, are all common)
Does the rate of reimbursement change because you’re seeing a non-preferred provider?
Does my insurer have a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist “in – network”? If not, ask if it would be covered at in the in-network rates?
Does your policy require a written prescription from your primary care physician?
Does your policy require pre0authorization or a referral?
Do you have a deductible? And how much? How much has already been met?
NOTE: I do NOT accept Medicare and Medicare patients CANNOT be reimbursed by Medicare for visits with at Specialized Women’s Physical Therapy. I am sorry for the inconvenience.
