WHAT IS DIRECT ACCESS?
• DIRECT ACCESS (DA): Allows a patient to be evaluated and treated by a Physical Theraipst without a Doctors prescription. ....MEDICARE PATIENTS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR DIRECT ACCESS.... MOST PRIVATE INSURANCE COMPANIES ( NOT ALL ) WILL PAY FOR UP TO 10 TREATMENTS IN A 30 DAY PERIOD WITHOUT A PRESCRIPTION.
*** PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE TO CHECK TO SEE IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE FOR DIRECT ACCESS.***
• If you feel you have a problem, pain or injury that may benefit from the skilled services of a physical therapist, Direct Access may be an option. Once evaluated the therapist will determine if further evaluation or treatment is needed.
Simply stated, the sooner an injury is treated, the quicker the recovery. Waiting for an appointment with a physician can impede the healing process because effective treatment is delayed. Injured muscles and joints get stiff, weak and scar tissue can develop. More importantly, you are not able to do the activities you want to do.
