Functional Capacity Exam
Dr. Abraham Lieberman, PT, DPT is the director of rehabilitation at Bellaire PT and personally performs all the functional Capacity Examinations (FCE). Bellaire PT is contacted to perform customized FCE’s from unions and companies across the United States of America and on one occasion from Saudi Arabia. Patients with a need to be evaluated to return to work as manual laborers, pilots, and marines have successfully completed FCE’s at Bellaire PT.
An FCE typically lasts 4 to 6 hours and reproduces the patient’s necessary task requirements in the work environment. Dr. Lieberman makes a special effort to include worst-case scenarios to remove any doubt of patient performance and to reveal any deficits and functional limitations. The FCE includes a detailed report available to the party paying for the FCE.
A standardized FCE is available for $895.00, and a modified FCE for job-specific criteria starts at $625.00. Most insurance companies will not pay for an FCE, and payment is due at the time of scheduling. Bellaire PT will submit the super-bill to the patient’s insurance and in the event of payment, the patient will be refunded any overpayment.
