A recent study revealed that more than 75% of people had no clue that they could see a physical therapist without getting a referral from a medical doctor! Direct Access became law in New Jersey in 2004 allowing anyone with insurance to choose their physical therapy office and provider without a prescription or referral from their primary doctor. 

 

Direct Access saves you money by eliminating an unnecessary visit to your primary care doctor and having to pay a copay. Additionally, your treatment can begin the day you step foot in your physical therapist’s office and speed up your recovery process.

You now have control over your health and where you go for physical therapy needs.
