FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL HOME TRANSFORMATIONS?
Functional Home Transformations (FHT) is a mobile occupational therapy business whose goal is to allow those clients 55+ years to continue to live in their homes as long as possible, without having to leave the home they love. "Mobile" means that we perform services in the client's home instead of a clinic or office setting. FHT specializes in comprehensive evaluations of the client, the client's home, and how the client interacts within that environment. We make recommendations for the most appropriate changes to the home to allow the client to safely, independently, and successfully participate in meaningful and necessary tasks.
I HAVE A FRIEND THAT CAN INSTALL A GRAB BAR FOR ME. WHAT WOULD YOUR COMPANY DO DIFFERENTLY?
Though FHT does not perform any structural modifications, including installing grab bars, building ramps, etc., we closely collaborate with builders, construction workers, and handymen to ensure that all modifications are specified to the client's current and future needs based on the findings of the comprehensive client and home assessment.
WHAT IS YOUR FEE FOR SERVICES?
You may be eligible for FHT services for little to no out-of-pocket costs! FHT is a Medicare B Provider. This means that if you have Medicare B, FHT will bill your insurance, and they pay 80% of your claim. If you have secondary insurance, that insurance usually takes care of the remaining 20% of the bill. If you are interested in having FHT perform an evaluation for you and your home and you are not a Medicare Part B beneficiary, but you have private insurance, we will contact your insurance company to determine what out-of-network benefits they provide for outpatient therapy services; we will then decide if we are able to accept their offer or whether or not our services will have to be paid out of pocket. If you are not insured OR if you would like an in-home assessment for future planning purposes but not a direct medical need, you are asked to pay out of pocket for our services.
