Direct access means you don't need a referral from the doctor to attend physical therapy. The State of Kentucky has unlimited direct access to physical therapy (which is excellent for the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky). So, if you want to come to Physical Therapy Plus for physical therapy, just give us a call, and we will call your insurance company, verify that you have physical therapy benefits and get you scheduled for an appointment.
The only exception to the direct access law in Kentucky is for federally funded health care plans (i.e., Medicare). If you have Medicare, just let us know when you call in, and we will call your doctor for you and request a prescription for you to attend physical therapy. It some cases, your MD may ask to see you (or talk to you first) before writing you a prescription for physical therapy.
