Persons living at home should speak with their healthcare provider about their interest in rehab at Rancho. If your healthcare provider agrees to refer you to Rancho, Rancho’s Patient Access Center (PAC) <links to Outpatient Referrals and Appointments page> has the documents needed to begin the process.
A member of the PAC team will follow up with you regarding insurance and next steps. Once everything is cleared, you’ll have an outpatient evaluation with a doctor who is a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) specialist at Rancho.
The PM&R will determine if inpatient rehab is appropriate for you. Your insurance company will be contacted for authorization. If all goes well, you’ll be admitted to Rancho shortly thereafter.
You can always reach out to the PAC team with questions about this process.
