Direct Access to Care
Direct access to physical therapy is your opportunity to be evaluated and treated by a licensed physical therapist without first seeing your physician for a prescription. Providing patients and clients with direct access to physical therapist services saves money and prevents unnecessary delays in getting services that can affect recovery.
Under Minnesota law, patients are allowed 90 days of treatment by a physical therapist without a physician referral. A chronic condition, previously diagnosed and documented by a physician, for which you have already been treated also needs no referral. If payment is approved by your insurance company direct access is your opportunity to save time and money, thereby expediting your treatment, relief, and recovery.
*Note: Direct Access does not apply to Medicare patients.
