Physical Therapy Insurance Information
A physician's referral is not needed for physical therapy in New York State (since November 2006). Treatment may be rendered by a licensed physical therapist for ten visits or thirty days, whichever comes first, without a referral from a physician, dentist, podiatrist, nurse practitioner or licensed midwife, according to the New York State Education Dept. A written notice will be provided to all patients in compliance with New York State regulations.
We are in strict compliance with New York State regulations for the provision of physical therapy. We accept insurance as an out-of-network provider. Physical therapy is an approved expense for your FSA/HSA. See our Price List for current rates. Payment is due when you arrive for your visit. Invoices will be provided to you for reimbursement by your insurance company if they cover our services.
