Alaska legislation has approved Physical Therapists to have Direct Access.  This means for many conditions you may see your physical therapist as your primary health provider without a physician referral. You should check with your insurance company to verify if they  require you to have a doctor’s referral before seeing your physical therapist.

It is important to realize regardless of your insurance company or doctor you have the right to choose a physical therapist that best meets your needs.
