COVID-19 First Responder Program

Co-payments and Co-insurance Waived for First Responders and Licensed Health Care Professionals Diagnosed with COVID-19

Athletico is proud to support the health and wellness of frontline workers during the on-going public health crisis. Co-payments and co-insurance will be waived to first responders or licensed health care professionals who are seeking rehabilitation services related to recovery from COVID-19.*

Our COVID-19 Recovery and Rehabilitation program is designed to help recovering patients through the physical and emotional challenges that can occur from the virus and get them back to the life they once knew. Physical complications after COVID-19 can persist for months or even years and include impairments in muscle strength, heart and lung capacity, pain, balance, endurance, and walking ability leading to a loss of function and independence.

Patients can be treated in the clinic, in the home or from virtually through our Telehealth platform if they pass Athletico’s screening protocol, consisting of temperature checks and screening questions, as well as the CDC guidelines. Treatment plans may include exercise training, manual therapy, body positioning and education focusing on mindfulness, relaxation, energy conservation and activity modification. Recovering patients can be confident that Athletico’s assessment and recommended treatment plans will help them recuperate, reach their health goals, and return to their daily activities.
