WHAT IS DIRECT ACCESS?
Direct access are laws in the states of Maryland and Virginia that allow you to seek care from your physical therapist without a physician referral. This means that as a patient you can call us directly if you have an injury, pain, stiffness, or weakness that you want evaluated. The Jackson Clinics can now be your FIRST stop for any aches or pains that you have!
WHAT IF MY 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.
HOW DOES DIRECT ACCESS HELP ME?
- Avoid long wait times and expensive testing
- Experience better outcomes and higher satisfaction levels
- Get pain relief without the dependency on Opioids
- Reduce or remove the need for surgery
*Direct Access is not applicable to patients in federal or state funded programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare.
