Before BetterPT, trying to find physical therapy in Florida and book appointments was a source of stress. There used to be tons of paperwork, long calls with insurance providers, and general fear that you’re not finding the right clinic. With our platform, you can find a physical therapist in Florida and so much more. In addition to finding and booking appointments, you can also read physical therapy reviews in Florida so you can ensure you’re choosing the best facility for your needs. With the benefits of direct access for physical therapy, there’s no referral needed before you book. So, instead of searching “physical therapy near me in Florida” on a random search engine and weeding through the results, use BetterPT instead. There’s a reason more and more physical therapy clinics in Florida and across the nation are signing up to our platform every day. To get started with direct access for physical therapy in Florida, type in your location and insurance below.
Florida is one of 26 states that allow direct patient access to physical therapy. Direct access physical therapy in Florida, though, does have some provisions. Before you start leveraging all of the benefits of direct access for physical therapy, familiarize yourself with these:
If the patient’s condition falls outside of the physical therapist’s scope of practice while undergoing direct access physical therapy in Florida, the physical therapist must refer the patient to, or consult with, a qualified healthcare practitioner.
If the direct access for physical therapy care plan in Florida exceeds 30 days and the condition has not been assessed by a physician of record, then the physical therapist must have a practitioner of record review and sign the plan. However, this does not apply if (1) the patient has been examined by a physician in a different state and diagnosed by the physician as having a condition for which physical therapy is required, and (2) the physical therapist in Florida is treating that specific condition.
Physical therapists may not implement a treatment plan for direct access to physical therapy in Florida for patients in an acute care setting such as a hospital, ambulatory surgical center, or mobile surgical facility.
Direct Access lets you self-refer for physical therapy. No prescription required.
