Who can give a patient a prescription for Physical Therapy?


Internists, Family practitioners, Nurse practitioners, Orthopedists, Neurologists, Dentists and even Orthodontists, can give a patient a prescription for physical therapy.

In the state of NJ, a patient has “direct access” to a physical therapist as long as the PT writes a plan of care back to the physician and/or refers back to the physician when deemed medically necessary. However, most private insurances and Medicare will not reimburse for services unless the patient does have a MD signed prescription.
