WHAT TYPES OF HEALTH INSURANCE DO YOU ACCEPT?

We offer discounted cash pay bundles in 5 and 10 treatment packages.  Please call for pricing.

DO I NEED A DOCTOR’S REFERRAL?

No, California allows Direct Access to a Physical Therapist if you are willing to cover the costs of physical therapy yourself.  

However,  if you want to see a physical therapist, but your insurance company requires a referral in order to cover the care that you will receive, you will need to obtain that referral.

 

To obtain the referral, make an appointment with your primary care provider.

Acceptable providers include a physician, a physician’s assistant, or a nurse practitioner. Discuss the issue you are having and express an interest in physical therapy.

If the medical provider approves, they will provide you with the referral needed by your insurance company. If not, they will inform you of other options you have at your disposal.
