    I would ask the therapist that you choose if there is a way that you could set up a home program and then come in less frequently to get checked out. They are not legally able to waive the co-pay - and I know that it stinks having to pay that much.

    You could also see if you qualify for any type of "scholarship" from any of the hospitals that have PT programs.

    I would encourage you to ask around and see if you can find anyone that is willing to help with the co-pay.

    Woody, you should also call your insurance company and ask to have a case manager assigned to you. S/he will act as your advocate and work to help you get what you need.
    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.
