    POLICIES
    All patients are required to read and agree to the following policies:

    DIRECT ACCESS
    You no longer need a prescription from your physician to receive physical therapy services. Please click here to review the law passed in August 2018.

    According to the Illinois Physical Therapy Practice Act, Sec 1.2, patients may now be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist without a referral or prescription from a physician.

    Benefits you gain

    • Quicker access to services: You, your friend, or family member can receive and benefit from physical therapy care as soon as a problem arises. You do not need to first visit your doctor.
    • Improved outcomes: Early intervention physical therapy improves patient outcomes by not delaying treatments. The sooner treatment can begin, the less complex the problem becomes.
    • Reduced health care costs: Mike Riley, president of the Illinois Physical Therapy Association reports,  “Studies across the country have shown that direct access to physical therapy is extremely cost-effective, reducing total health care costs by as much as 30 percent and, in some cases, reducing patients’ out-of-pocket costs by as much as 80 percent.”
    • Therapist-physician interaction: Under the new Illinois legislation, physical therapists must notify your primary care physician or treating healthcare professional within 5 business days that you are receiving physical therapy services. Communication between your therapist and doctor is important so that you receive the comprehensive care you need as you are recover. Symmetry Physical Therapy has always maintained close communications with patients’ healthcare professionals and will continue to do so.
