Yes. The choice of where you receive therapy is always yours. While the majority of our patients come to us by physician referral/recommendation, many clients request to see us due to our strong clinical reputation in the community.
In South Carolina, you can see a physical therapist without a referral from a physician. However, your insurance may require a referral from a physician to cover your expenses. To find out, call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask if a referral is necessary for coverage of physical therapy.
If your insurance requires a physician referral, that’s no problem. After your first visit, we can recommend you to a trusted physician or specialist before continuing your care. We have relationships with many local providers and may be able to get an appointment for you sooner than if you went on your own.
- We participate in the majority of major health insurance plans including Medicare and Worker’s Compensation. Please contact us prior to your first visit to see if we participate with your specific health plan.
As a service to our patients, we will gladly file claims with your insurance company on your behalf. In order to appropriately submit these claims, we will need to obtain a copy of your insurance identification card to ensure that we have the necessary information.
Your therapist will conduct an evaluation of your condition lasting between 60-90 minutes. The evaluation is necessary to create a program designed specifically to address your needs for maximum recovery. We want you to start feeling better immediately, so we consider it a top priority to provide treatment, as well as evaluate you on your first visit!
– Referral slip from your medical doctor
