Direct Access


Did you know that you don’t need a doctor’s referral to visit a physical therapist? Thanks to Direct Access when you are in pain or are injured you don’t have to wait months to see your primary physician. You can take control of your health and visit Advanced Rehab right away without any recommendation. Below are answers to some common questions to give you the confidence to take advantage of Direct Access.

1. Will not having referral impact my ability to pay through insurance? No, you will still be able to use your insurance even without a referral! Advanced Rehab accepts most major insurances and local insurances. Prior to your first appointment our helpful staff will pre-certify your insurance so you know what any copays or deductibles will be before you start treatment.

2. Will my physician be upset that I did not see them first? Advanced Rehab values the patient-physician relationship, and will communicate directly with your doctor’s office regarding your therapy plan. Your doctor will be well aware of the treatment you are receiving at our clinics. 

3. Don’t I need tests before beginning treatment? Our licensed physical therapists are qualified to help guide you to a specialist or test if needed. Studies have shown that patients who access physical therapy sooner after an injury recover quicker, and we want to get you on the road to recovery as swiftly and safely as possible.

4. How quickly can I be seen using Direct Access? We do our best to see patients within 24-48 hours of your call. Our goal is to help relieve you of your pain as soon as possible.
