Residents in New York state can go directly
to a Physical Therapist without being required by law, to
obtain a prescription from your medical doctor. This provides
New Yorkers with another streamlined access-point into the
health care system.
Close collaboration between your doctor and
your physical therapist will continue to ensure your safety
and guide you toward full recovery.
Please inquire if your insurance company covers
direct access services. Due to the sharply-rising costs of
co-pays, many New Yorkers are opting to pay out-of-pocket
for the convenience of being able to be seen immediately and
to avoid the added expense of an additional visit to the doctor.
