Did you know you can now begin physical therapy services without a Physician's Referral. Under "Direct Access" regulations this can be done for up to 30 days without a prescription from your medical provider. If you have not reached complete improvement in your treatment plan within the 30-day timeline, our team will confirm your current physician or help you identify a physician for your physical therapy report to be sent. You can been seen for up to 30 days before your physician needs to provide a prescription for physical therapy.
We are now accepting new patients with current physician referrals or prescriptions for physical therapy. However, in the state of Virginia a patient may solicit physical therapy services for up to 30 days, before needing to provide a physician's referral or prescription for physical therapy.
In order to maintain a high level of patient care, our practice serves as an out-of-network provider of physical therapy services. Virginia Therapy & Fitness Center accepts most heath insurance as an out-of-network provider. This means that you may need to meet an out-of-network deductible before your insurance will pay a percentage of services by Virginia Therapy & Fitness Center. Please review our Financial Policy for further detailed information. For convenience to our patients, Virginia Therapy & Fitness Center will submit all insurance claims for the patient, except Tricare, Auto Insurance claims and all other legal pending cases.
If you have any further questions regarding insurance or billing policies please contact our office at 703-709-1116.
