In California, Direct Access rules allow patients to be seen for physical therapy for up to 12 visits with no prescription. After 12 visits or 45 days (whichever is first), the Expy team will work with your doctor to obtain a prescription if more visits or time is needed.
Medicare requires a signed plan of care for physical therapy. Your therapist will create a plan of care during your first visit, and the team will work with your doctor to get it approved. You will need a new plan of care established every 90 days or 10 visits whichever is sooner.
