Make a Referral

Universal Institute strives to be number one in the state with customer service. Our professionals will assist you in making the admissions processes as easy as possible.  When making a referral please fax the following to 973 992 7178:

  1. Medical history and physical
  2. Current physician and nursing notes
  3. Current Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy notes
  4. Current list of medications
  5. Face sheet of demographic information (name, address, phone #, DOB, contacts)

Once received the admissions office will carefully review medical records and determine admission based on the medical history provided and individual’s needs.  If found appropriate for our program the next steps will follow:

  1. Fax an RX from a Physician stating Evaluate and Treat for PT, OT, ST and Cognitive therapy. 
  2. You will come in for an hour 1:1 private evaluation with each discipline to determine if therapy is warranted and what your long term and short term goals will be.
  3. Each discipline will write a full summary of the evaluation and it will be forwarded to the insurance company for authorizations.
  4. Once authorizations are received, the client is ready for admission.

The tour can last as long as necessary. Many clients choose to spend several hours at our day program to get a better idea of what day at UI Rehab NJ is like.
