Do I need a physician referral?

Provider referrals are always welcome, although the state of Wisconsin does not require a physician referral to attend physical therapy. However, most insurance companies do still require a referral. If you would like to find out for sure, you can contact your insurance company by calling the number on the back of your insurance card and asking them directly. Most patients are already working with a nurse practitioner, chiropractor, physician, surgeon, podiatrist, or dentist who are more than willing to provide a script for physical therapy, many by just requesting this by phone. Our office is happy to assist you with obtaining a referral and guiding you through this simple process.
