Kessler Rehabilitation Program: Select Medical-No Prescription Needed

Did you know that you no longer need a prescription for physical therapy?

It’s called Direct Access and it empowers you to be your own healthcare advocate.

In New Jersey, patients may be evaluated and treated by a licensed physical, occupational or speech therapist without a physician’s prescription.** This means you can start treatment more quickly to restore your strength, regain your skills and reduce any pain.

Getting Physical Therapy first may help you:

*Save Time

*Save Money

*Expedite Treatment

*Avoid Opioids

*Prevent Surgery

Depending on your diagnosis, your Kessler therapist may recommend that you follow up with a physician or other licensed healthcare professional.

**A physician’s prescription may be required for Worker Comp and Motor Injury cases.

Freedom of Choice:

If you physician does give you a referral, you are not obligated to receive physical therapy in any specific facility. You have the right to choose where you want to go.

Kessler Rehabilitation Center offers the following recommendation to help you choose the right provider:

*Insist that your therapy be provided by a licensed physical, occupation or speech therapist. Kessler’s therapists are licensed by the State of New Jersey and may hold advanced certifications.

*If you are receiving treatment from physical therapist assistant (PTA), be sure that he/she is supervised by a licensed physical therapist.

*Find out if the center accepts your insurance. Kessler participates with most insurance plans, which may help to minimize any out of pocket expenses.

*Ask if the center will submit your claims to your insurance company. Kessler does this and will also help you estimate any personal financial responsibilities.

*Check patient reviews and testimonials. Kessler is proud to share the comments our patients provide.

*Learn what accreditations and other recognitions the center has earned. Kessler is accredited by the Joint Commission and CARF, which ensure the highest level of quality and patient safety.

And Remember:

You are the most important member of your healthcare team-and are free to choose the rehabilitation provider that can best help you meet our goals.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" ( 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
