If you'd like to schedule a new patient appointment, please call Texas Back Institute at 972-608-5000 or 800-247-BACK (2225) or email email@example.com. Our scheduling coordinator will match you and your specific need with the appropriate facility/physician. Once an appointment has been scheduled, you can print the new patient forms from our website or have them emailed to you. If you are unable to print your forms please notify the front desk and they can print them for you.
On the day of your appointment, please arrive with the new patient forms completed, and any films and reports from previous doctors. A chart will then be created and you'll meet with your new doctor.
The Texas Back Institute physician will get your history, do the examination and review the prior x-rays and reports. It may be necessary to order new testing on this day or in the near future. Once all testing has been done and information has been gathered, the physician can then give a diagnosis and treatment options.
Our physicians accept many HMO and PPO insurance plans and Workers' Compensation. In fact, we accept more than 80 managed care plans. This is in addition to the point-of-service and traditional indemnity insurance we also accept.
While most of our physicians are on many plans, an individual physician may not be on a specific plan. You should always check when making an appointment to ensure your insurance is accepted by the physician you will be seeing.
If you need to see a physical therapist as part of your treatment plan and our therapists are not in your network, please request a list of network therapists from your insurance plan. From that list, we will gladly refer you to a therapist we know. If you must select a therapist outside our offices, we will make sure he or she receives the appropriate information to treat you. If you have any questions, ask our scheduling staff when you call for your appointment.
Once a Texas Back Institute physician determines your treatment plan, the plan will be shared with your primary care physician and the referral will be updated. If you are covered by Workers' Compensation, we will coordinate your coverage with your case manager or representative.
UPDATE (OCTOBER 1, 2011): Effective October 1, 2011, UnitedHealthcare updated its Medical Policy as follows: “Cervical artificial total disc replacement is proven for the treatment of single level degenerative disc disease in skeletally mature patients when used with FDA approved implants.” If you have healthcare coverage provided by UnitedHealthcare, consult with your benefits administrator and refer to your benefits plan to determine if you may be qualified for benefits.
