Direct Access gives consumers and patients the ability to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist without being referred by a doctor or other healthcare practitioner. Michigan was the last of the 50 states to implement direct access and it goes into effect on January 1, 2015. These big changes lead to questions about what this means for you and how you can benefit. We’ve put together a Q&A to let you know how Direct Access works and how you can benefit.
