In Pennsylvania, by law, you may be seen by a physical therapist without a prescription referral for the first 30 days, in most instances. This is called direct access. Some insurances that allow their members to participate in direct access are Aetna PPO, Capital Blue PPO, Health America PPO, Health Assurance PPO, Highmark Blue Shield PPO, POS and Highmark Blue Shield Federal.
If you are injured, instead of waiting for the issue to resolve itself, call Cardin & Miller Physical Therapy. Schedule an appointment and get started with physical therapy immediately. We will check your insurance to confirm that it allows direct access and schedule an evaluation with you as soon as possible.
During the evaluation, if we feel you should see your family doctor or another specialist, we will be glad to refer and schedule you with the appropriate health care professional.
