  • As of July 1, 2013 according to the State of Kansas Physical therapy Practice Act, Statue 65-2921 states that patients may refer themselves to a physical therapist without a referral from their physician or other health care provider. As stated in this statute it is our responsibility to inform you that at the conclusion of an initial evaluation, we will not be providing you with a medical diagnosis but rather a physical therapy diagnosis and appropriate physical therapy goals to work towards in future physical therapy visits. In the event that you do not make measurable progress towards the physical therapy goals set by you and your physical therapists within 10 visits or 15 business days after your second visit with your physical therapist we are then required by law to receive a referral from an appropriate “licensed health care practitioner” to continue your physical therapy plan of care. A “licensed health care practitioner” means a person licensed to practice medicine and surgery, a licensed podiatrist, a licensed physician assistant or a licensed advanced practice registered nurse working pursuant to the order or direction of a person licensed to practice medicine and surgery, a licensed chiropractor, a licensed dentist or licensed optometrist in appropriate related cases

A receipt will be emailed to the email address on file. Upon request, an itemized summary report will be mailed showing how the payments have been applied towards the balance. A $20 processing fee will be applied to all declined credit cards so it will be imperative to keep an updated card on file.
