What is Direct Access?

Direct access allows individuals the opportunity to seek physical therapy treatment without the need for a physician referral. Whether it is a new injury, reoccurring problem, or chronic condition an appointment to see a physical therapist is simply a phone call away. There are a few select insurance plans, in addition to Medicare, that require a physician referral in order to have the services covered. That requirement can be determined at the time of insurance benefit verification.
