Did you know that you can now see us without having to see your physician first! This is known as “Direct Access to Physical Therapy.”
NY state now allows patients to see a physical therapist without a physician referral for up to 10 visits or 30 days, whichever comes first! This enables patients to avoid delays in starting appropriate treatment by having to wait to be seen by their physician.
The only exceptions are for patients with workers compensation or no-fault who are still required to have a physician referral.
If you have Medicare or Medicaid as your primary insurance, we can still see you for your initial visit without seeing a physician, but your physician would then need to approve additional therapy by approving/signing our treatment plan. In some cases, your physician may require that they see you before they will approve additional therapy.
So, if you have a problem that you think physical therapy can help you with, don’t wait! Give us a call today and we can start you on the road to recovery as soon as possible!
