Thank you for your interest in Prestige Health and Wellness. One of the key advantages of our facility is that, in many cases, you do not need a referral from a doctor to receive treatment from our healthcare professionals. We offer a range of services, including Chiropractic, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Acupuncture, and Massage Therapy, and while some insurance plans may require a referral for coverage, most do not. Let me provide you with more detailed information on our approach to care and recent changes in healthcare regulations.
No Doctor Referral Required for Most Services:
For services like Chiropractic, Acupuncture, and Massage Therapy, you typically do not need a referral from a medical doctor to initiate treatment. We operate as a portal of entry for your musculoskeletal and wellness needs, allowing you to seek our expertise directly.
Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy – New Laws and Portal of Entry Care:
In recent years, there have been significant changes in healthcare regulations that are particularly beneficial to our patients. In New York, Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists can now see patients without the need for a medical referral for the first month of care. This means that if you’re seeking Physical Therapy or Occupational Therapy services, you can come directly to Prestige Health and Wellness without having to first see a physician for a referral.
Insurance and Referral Requirements:
It’s important to note that insurance coverage for our services can vary. While many insurance plans do not require a doctor’s referral for Chiropractic, Acupuncture, or Massage Therapy, some may request a referral for coverage, and this can depend on the specific terms of your insurance plan. Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy coverage may also differ among insurance providers, so we recommend checking with your insurance company to understand your specific requirements.
Our team at Prestige Health and Wellness is committed to helping you navigate this process. We can assist you in verifying your insurance coverage and ensuring you have the necessary documentation if a referral is required. Whether you have a referral or not, we are here to provide you with the highest quality care and support to address your musculoskeletal concerns and wellness needs.
If you have any questions or need assistance with understanding your insurance requirements or treatment options, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We’re dedicated to making your experience at Prestige Health and Wellness as smooth and beneficial as possible, and we look forward to working with you on your journey to better health and well-being.
