We work closely with physicians in the community and our patients are often referred from a physician. If your physician refers you to therapy, we will keep in contact with him/her to make sure that your status is updated with all providers. Copies of your medical records will be sent to your physician if requested by the physician or patient.
In the state of Kentucky, physical therapists have direct access to treat patients. This means that you do not need a prescription from a physician to come to physical therapy unless your insurance company requires it for payment. Examples of insurances that require a physician order for physical therapy services are Medicare, Tricare, and Medicaid. We will be glad to call and check on your insurance benefits and requirements prior to beginning physical therapy.
