Direct Access laws in the State of Michigan allow our office to provide treatment without a prescription from a licensed physician or specialist for 21 days or 10 treatments, whichever occurs first. Although under Michigan law we are able to treat patients without a prescription, most insurance carriers still require a signed plan of care from your physician or specialist in order to be able to bill your insurance.
What this means is that our office will provide an evaluation and send a plan of care to your primary care physician or appropriate specialist. Your physician or specialist will then have the opportunity to review the information we provide after our evaluation. The physician or specialist can then approve the plan of care set by the therapist, make adjustments to the plan if needed, and/or request a follow-up with the physician or specialist prior to authorizing treatment.
