Direct Access in Illinois
House Bill 4643 allows Illinois consumers to pursue and begin physical therapy services without a doctor’s referral while still ensuring professional medical oversight safeguards.
How does this affect your access to Physical Therapy?
You can now visit a physical therapist without a doctor's prescription - whether for an injury, a sore muscle or pain, to improve your fitness and mobility or to address a functional goal, among other reasons.
Important things to know...
Your physical therapist must notify your primary health care professional within 5 business days of when you visit them and receive physical therapy treatment
Your physical therapist will need to refer you to a health care professional if....
There is no measurable functional improvement after 10 visits or 15 business days, whichever occurs first
You are returning to physical therapy for the same or similar condition after 30 calendar days of being discharged by your physical therapist
Your condition is determined to need more than physical therapy during your initial evaluation
While the new law makes it easier to access physical therapy, not every health plan is required to cover physical therapy. It is recommended that you contact your insurance provider before visiting a physical therapist to ensure the visit will be covered by your insurance plan.
