REFERRALS

Direct Access 

Did you know you can see a physical therapist without a referral from your doctor?

 

Although, your insurance may require pre-authorization if you want to receive reimbursement of services, so it is smart to check with your insurance first (see Out-of-Network Worksheet).

Under Direct Access, you are receiving direct physical therapy treatment services from an individual who is a physical therapist licensed by the Physical Therapy Board of California.

Under California law, you may continue to receive direct physical therapy treatment services for a period of up to 45 calendar days or 12 visits, whichever occurs first, after which time a physical therapist may continue providing you with physical therapy treatment services only after receiving a dated signature on the physical therapist’s plan of care indicating approval of the physical therapist’s plan of care and that an in-person patient examination and evaluation was conducted by a physician, surgeon or podiatrist.

Standard Referral 

Did you know that you can choose to receive care from whichever Physical Therapist you prefer, despite a doctor's referral to a different clinic?

 

Although, your insurance may require pre-authorization if you want to receive reimbursement of services, so it is smart to check with your insurance first (see Out-of-Network Worksheet).
