Freedom Of Choice
“Direct Access” is your Freedom of Choice.
You have the freedom to choose your own physical therapist! Currently, you may be evaluated by a physical therapist without a physician’s referral in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. In addition, all 50 states and the District of Columbia allow some level of treatment by a physical therapist without a physician’s referral. Keep in mind that your insurance policy may require a visit to the primary care physician first or may limit your access to preferred providers only.
Your physician may refer you for physical therapy that is to be provided in the physician’s office, or to a facility in which the physician has a financial interest. If this is your situation, be aware that you have the right to choose your own physical therapist and that you are not obligated to receive physical therapy in any specific facility. Always insist that your physical therapy be provided by a licensed physical therapist.
