Referral Guide for Health Care Professionals

We look forward to helping your patient return to
maximum functionality and independence.

Building strong relationships with physicians and case managers is a top priority for us. Here’s what you need to know about referring a patient to Rehab Without Walls®.

When to Contact Us

Call as early in the process as possible BEFORE the patient is discharged. A good rule of thumb is to allow at least a week. However, we realize that is not always possible, and we will do everything we can to work quickly and within the patient’s timeframe.

Program Criteria

In general, these are the criteria for referral into our programs. For location specific service offerings and care settings, please view our Locations.


  • The patient should be medically stable
  • The patient should show clearly definable rehabilitation potential
  • The patient’s condition is manageable and does not require inpatient care

  • For Residential Transitional Care

For all potential referrals:

Provide the patient’s insurance information to the Rehab Without Walls team, so we can verify benefits immediately.

If the Patient is Hospitalized:

  1. Provide details for needed evaluation and therapies. These details will need to include the physician’s name and NPI number.
  2. After the release is signed, our team will review the patient’s medical records and assess whether our model of care is suitable for the individual. If so, the next steps include:
    • Work with the payer to obtain the necessary authorization. Meet with the patient and family and explain care coverage.
    • For Home and Community Rehab, assess the individual’s home to ensure it’s a safe environment and a smooth transition can be achieved.
    • Develop initial care plan based on initial needs.

Next Steps After Discharge

Once rehab begins, the referring physician or physicians become part of our treatment team and may participate in ongoing meetings and evaluations as needed.
