Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be referred by a physician?
Not at first. New York State is a Direct Access state—meaning you can visit a physical therapist 10 times or for 30 days (whichever comes first) before a referral or prescription is required.
If I come in via Direct Access, am I covered by insurance?
Whether you come to PT by physician referral or Direct Access, your coverage will depend on the insurance plan you are enrolled in, please call us to verify your benefits.
What is the benefit of Direct Access?
Faster results. Research shows that the sooner an injury receives physical therapy- the sooner an individual recovers with less costs.
