Direct Access

Direct access to the doctors of physical therapy at Capital Area PT:

In most cases, you can start physical therapy and get the relief you need right now without a physician prescription. You do not need a referral from a physician to begin therapy at Capital Area PT. You have “direct access” to the doctors of physical therapy for 10 visits or 30 days, which can get you going on the right path faster and with fewer appointments. Direct access patients are still covered by most insurance companies (Workers Comp/No Fault and Medicare require a physician prescription).

The therapists are always happy to speak with and include your primary care physician or physician of your choice to coordinate your care at any time. The therapists are also well equipped to determine if a referral to a physician is necessary to complete your care.
