Welcome to the site of Physical Therapist Erika Fabian and her private practice
Erika believes that all patients should be heard, understood and educated about her or his condition. Erika provides quality care for everyone with orthopedic needs and also for women for women’s health issues.
Appointments are scheduled by phone at 808-872-3333 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. The number of visits needed will depend on the diagnosis, determined after the first visit. It is recommended that you book three appointments in advance spaced a week apart to maintain consistency in your treatment. Appointments will be 45 minutes to an hour depending on your needs, they might run shorter or longer.

Fees and Billing
Erika Fabian is an “out of network provider.” This means you have to pay her in full at the time of the treatment. Your insurance provider may reimburse you or cover a percentage of your visit. Please click on the Insurance Worksheet below for information on what you will need to ask the insurance companies regarding reimbursement. Some insurance companies require pre-certification or pre-authorization before your initial consultation.You will be responsible for submitting paperwork prior to your first appointment in order to get “pre-approved” for treatment if your insurance provider requires it. If you are not submitting paperwork to the insurance company for reimbursement for your treatments you do not require a doctor’s referral. Currently, HMO and Medicare insurance companies will not reimburse you for your physical therapy with any “out of network” provider.
Savings with an “Out of Network” Provider
The average co-pay for physical therapy treatment is between $20-30 each visit. You might end up spending less money out of pocket if you receive very efficient treatments and get well sooner than if you have therapy for a prolonged period of time.
This cost saving could be magnified:
• if your co-pay for physical therapy is higher than $30 per visit,
• if you have a high deductible insurance plan,
• if your insurance company denied further physical therapy for your condition or you have used all of your allotted visits for the year. Treatments will be spent only with you giving you one on one time and attention. You can combine not only the money saved, but also the time you saved with fewer visits and less time being in pain or being uncomfortable. Hopefully you will heal faster and require fewer visits to do so.
If you do not show up for a scheduled appointment more than once you will be charged fully for the visit.
