Direct Access to Physical Therapy is Here!!

What does that mean?

In 1979, Maryland passed direct access legislation, which allows you to go directly to a licensed physical therapist without a physician referral. Maryland Direct Access laws indicate that there are no restrictions or limitations whatsoever for treatment absent a referral. This means that you, as a patient, can be evaluated and treated by a licensed Physical Therapist without having to first see your physician for a referral.

There are many benefits to Direct Access, including:

This will give you much quicker access to the treatment you need and deserve.While each patient’s case is different, clinical research shows that Direct Access should save you money.

Physical therapy visits last 30-60 minutes so your condition is thoroughly evaluated.Seeing a physical therapist first, in many cases, will result in fewer overall treatment sessions, better results, and a faster recovery. 

 

Possible Additional Insurance Requirements

While Maryland state law allows unrestricted direct access, some insurers may have additional requirements. For example, the Physical Therapist needs to consult with the patient’s physician regarding the plan of care if therapy lasts longer than 30 days for Medicare patients. However, your referral for Physical Therapy can be accepted at any Physical Therapy facility that you choose, depending on your insurance coverage.

We value the relationship we have with our patients, and their physicians. We will continue to foster this relationship by notifying a patient’s physician of our evaluation and findings and providing updates on the care plan as needed. We continue to strive to provide you and your family with the best quality healthcare possible.

PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

Femi is the bomb! He listened intently to my problems, offered insight about what was going on with my body, taught me the right exercises to heal my muscles, and taught me why those exercises worked. After just a few days of doing those workouts, my mobility and overall quality of life dramatically improved. I was afraid physical therapy would be a slog and I put off starting it for way too long, but this experience has been everything I hoped it would be.

Bob Bobertson (Ciano)

The therapist is informative and personable. Safety is his priority. He is able to give 1:1 attention to your abilities and limitations. I highly recommend his services.

Swift Rehabilitation served well the residents of Superior Assisted Living with their team of professional and knowledgeable therapists.They understood what their recovery required. I witnessed firsthand our residents, their clients receive rehabilitation on various areas of their bodies, they healed and are living better. I highly recommend Swift Rehabilitation.

Lorrie Davis

We had residents in my Assisted Living that had gotten weaker due to not being able to go out as much during the Corona pandemic. Swift Rehabilitation Physical therapists came into our facility, were professional, communicated well with the staff and residents and were even able to work well with our most difficult resident. Till date, some of our residents still ask for Femi, they miss him. I strongly recommend Swift Rehabilitation for their Therapy services.
