Direct Access to Physical Therapy Leads to Faster Healing

How it works

Our New Jersey licensed physical therapists can treat that acute or chronic shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, neck, back, hip, knee, ankle, or foot injury right now! Under Direct Access, we have the authorization to treat you for up to 30 days. Upon completion of your Physical Therapy Evaluation, we will determine your Treatment Plan. If further diagnostic tools are needed to ensure proper care, your physical therapist will communicate our findings with the physician of your choice. If treatment is required past 30 days, the physical therapist will communicate our care to your physician.

Any person in New Jersey is eligible to be seen directly by a physical therapist and most commercial insurance companies will cover these charges.

In most cases, Medicare patients may receive physical therapy services without seeing a physician or obtaining a referral first. However, once a therapist determines that therapy is necessary, then at that point the patient must be under the care of a physician or non-physician practitioner (NPP).

Worker’s Comp / No fault and MVA’s are not covered.
