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.
