Rehabilitation Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have questions about the rehabilitation services offered at Hunt Regional Healthcare? Our FAQ section will provide you with the answers you’re looking for. Below is a list of questions addressed throughout our Rehabilitation FAQ.

There are several key differences between inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation at Hunt Regional. These differences include:

  • Length of Stay: Inpatients live within the Rehabilitation Unit during the duration of their treatment and receive 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care, while outpatients undergo therapy through the clinic and return home afterward.
  • Referrals: Inpatient rehabilitation referrals can be initiated by physicians, patients and their families, discharge planners and allied health professionals, while the outpatient clinic offers therapy services to hospital inpatients and the community through physician referral.
  • Cost: While inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRF) cost more per day than a lower level of care, studies suggest that IRF patients return home much sooner. Therefore, the significantly shorter lengths of stay reduce costs in the long run.
  • Treatment Frequency: Inpatients undergo therapy six days per week for a minimum of three hours per day, while outpatients undergo therapy based on individual evaluations.

Our inpatient rehabilitation program significantly helps individuals experiencing one or more of the following difficulties:

  • Limitations in self-care
  • Impaired mobility, balance and coordination
  • Limitations in joint strength or motion
  • Changes in memory, thought processing, reasoning and rational thinking
  • Speech and communication problems
  • Swallowing disorders

We understand that every patient is unique and has different needs, which is why our team individualizes every patient’s care. If you think you or someone you know would benefit from rehabilitation, please contact us at 903-408-1737 or 903-408-1740.

Yes. We encourage family members to do whatever they can to support the patient, including participating in the rehabilitation therapy process. Our interdisciplinary team of physicians and therapists work with each patient and their family to address the patient’s needs and progress at a personalized pace. We use a progressive approach to ensure each individualized treatment plan focuses on potential, not on limitations.

 There are two main methods of payment for rehabilitation patients to choose from, which include:

  • Medicare: Inpatient rehabilitation patients may be covered completely or in part by Medicare. Note that standard federal rules relating to individual hospital days apply.
  • Private: Insurance and managed care payments are based on contractual agreements between the hospital and the provider.
  • Please contact our case coordinator for more details on your coverage and benefits. Call today at 903-408-1737 or 903-408-1740.

Refer a Patient

Referrals can be initiated by physicians, patients and their families; discharge planners; and allied health professionals.

We invite you to contact the program director at the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit to discuss our services, code of ethics, mission, and philosophy as well as to arrange a tour of the unit.

Our program director or case coordinator will contact you immediately about the viability of admission for your referral. They can tell you if your patient has the potential for admission based on their diagnosis and functional need. Together, we can help your patient recover and achieve as much independence as possible.

If you believe a patient may benefit from our rehabilitation services, please phone us. A member of our staff will perform a screening at no charge. If it is determined that the patient is not a candidate for inpatient rehabilitation, alternate resources will be discussed.
