Probably: If the outpatient therapy is medically necessary and ordered by your doctor, then medicare should cover the cost of it outside of any copays you may have. Usually when someone has a referral for pt, the pt office does check beforehand to make sure it will be covered by insurance.

Depends: It depends upon the type and severity of pelvic fracture and also on functional improvement with possible prognosis.
