Can I get physical therapy without a doctor's referral?

You may receive a screening or examination; however, prior to initiating treatment you will need to get a referral from a Physician, Physician’s Assistant, Nurse Practitioner, Chiropractor (except Medicare beneficiaries), Podiatrist, or Dentist. A referral is required prior to treatment in order for your Physician, for example, to determine if diagnostic studies are necessary prior to treatment or prescribed medications to compliment the physical therapy plan. Also, insurance will not cover physical therapy without an appropriate referral. You can request physical therapy from your healthcare provider and generally there is no problem in receiving a referral.
