Yes. By law, you have the right to choose Spearfish Physical Therapy or any other physical therapy clinic or provider that you want. The choice is up to you. Your physical therapist does not have to be part of the same hospital or medical center system as your primary care physician.
Do I need a referral from a physician for physical therapy?
No. South Dakota is considered a "direct access" state, which means that you may contact Spearfish Physical Therapy on your own, at any time, to schedule an appointment. A referral/order/prescription from a physician is not required. However, some insurance plans will cover physical therapy costs at different levels based on whether you have a referral from a physician or not. Check with your health insurance provider if you have questions.
Does medicare cover physical therapy?
Yes. Physical therapy is a covered benefit through Medicare.
