Direct Access

Simply stated, all people in the state of PA are able to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist WITHOUT a physician Rx for a period of 30 days. The only insurances that do not recognize direct access are 1. a work related injury 2. a motor vehicle accident 3. Medicare. Direct Access is also beneficial in that if we are currently treating you for one issue and another should arise, we can easily evaluate and begin treatment for the second issue as well. That being said, not all insurances will pay for direct access services. We recommend that patients who would like to utilize Direct Access call their insurance carrier and verify if payment will be provided for services delivered under Direct Access. Should a patient decide they do not wish to use Direct Access, they may contact their physcian to obtain a prescription for physical therapy care for the new problem.
