In the state of Washington, patients have direct access to physical therapy services without the need for prescription or referral from a physician or non-physician practitioner (NPP). However, benefit coverage for physical therapy services is ultimately determined by your insurance carrier. Many insurance companies now require that you have either a current prescription, referral, or pre-authorization from a physician or NPP.It is best to always verify your benefit coverage with your carrier. Be aware that prescriptions, referrals, and pre-authorizations have an expiration date and/or visit limit that is separate from your plan's dollar amount or visit limit.
Should you have problems or concerns regarding your benefits and coverage, we encourage our patients to file complaints with the Office of Insurance Commissioner (OIC) when they encounter unpleasant or unfair experiences with their insurance provider as it relates to their access to care in physical therapy.
