Do I Have a Right to Request Physical Therapy

Every individual has the right to request a referral to physical therapy from their

health care provider. Each client also has the freedom to choose which physical

therapy practice they attend. Alaska allows clients to have “direct access” to

physical therapy, meaning that an individual can attend physical therapy without

a script from their health care provider. Insurance company coverage of

physical therapy visits varies, and calling your insurance company regarding

physical therapy coverage is highly recommended.
