* Please note Texas is one of the last states in which you must have a “referral” or “script” for physical therapy from a medical professional in order to receive physical therapy treatment. It can come from an MD, DO, physician’s assistant, dentist, podiatrist, adv. nurse practitioner, or chiropractor in any state. New regulations allow Physical Therapists to evaluate your injury without a referral and provide treatment for a limited number of days if the PT meets the following criteria: In order to provide treatment without a referral to a patient for ten consecutive business days, the PT must possess a doctoral degree in physical therapy or have completed thirty continuing competence units in differential diagnosis. If a PT with a doctoral degree has completed a fellowship or residency, the number increases to 15 consecutive business days. All patients without a referral must sign a disclosure form prior to treatment. At Carter Physiotherapy all our PT’s can start with treatment without a referral.
If you don’t already have a PT referral/script or are unable to easily acquire one from one of the practitioners listed above, you can now get a referral for only $25 via an app (telehealth visit). Contact us today to get the details on how you can obtain a referral from the convenience of your phone.
Carter Physiotherapy is a fee-for-service clinic so payment is due in full at each session. You may send self-claims to insurance for reimbursement if desired, and we can provide you with the necessary receipts to easily do so. Most of our patients do have health insurance but choose to forgo it in order to receive full-hour PT sessions, one-on-one with an expert physical therapist who specializes in hands-on manual therapy. Many of our patients seek reimbursement by sending in self-claims. Click here to find out how recent changes in most insurance plans have made our services no more expensive than an in-network PT clinic.
Finally, Carter Physiotherapy is not a Medicare Provider, so the law prevents us from providing Medicare patients with what would be considered “normally covered services.” If you are a Medicare beneficiary and would like to request treatment at our clinic, please call us at 512-693-8849.
