Can I seek treatment at any physical therapy clinic?

You have the right to choose which physical therapy clinic you want to use for your care, according to the law known as “The Patient’s Bill of Rights.”

Although many physicians may recommend a physical therapy clinic that they prefer, you are not required to go to that clinic. No medical professional, insurance company, or other entity has the authority to compel you to attend a physical therapy clinic. The decision is entirely yours!

You also do not have to wait for a physician to refer you to the clinic of your choice, thanks to Direct Access laws.

You have legal access to physical therapy services, including evaluations and treatments, with direct access. Every state, the District of Columbia, and the United States Virgin Islands permit evaluation and treatment without a physician referral.

To put it another way, you can select the clinic of your choice!
