Did you know? Maryland holds direct access legislation allowing patients to go directly to a licensed physical therapist without a physician’s referral.
While state law allows direct access, some insurers may have additional requirements. To find out if your insurance company requires a referral for PT simply contact their customer service department.
Direct access to a physical therapist will allow you to be treated earlier, resulting in a quicker recovery and return to your normal activities. Your physician of choice can still be actively involved in your care just as your physical therapist of choice. For information on how this may apply to you, contact one of our offices or visit the American Physical Therapy Association website.
