Do I need a doctor's order?
Texas is a direct access state, which means you do not need a physician’s referral to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist for the first consecutive 10 business days. If your treatments are exclusively coaching in nature (wellness based), you do not need a physician referral.
Do you accept insurance?
Physical therapists working for Unconstipated Kids are considered out of network, and are cash-based providers. This allows ample time for evaluation and treatments that would otherwise be restricted by insurance reimbursement requirements.
Do you accept Medicaid?
Medicare/Medicaid prohibits non-Medicare/Medicaid providers from accepting cash for clients that are covered under Medicare/Medicaid. Physical therapists treating for Unconstipated Kids do not participate in Medicare/Medicaid, and therefore can only see clients on Medicare/Medicaid for coaching (wellness) services only. Coaching (wellness) physical therapy is not reimbursable by Medicare/Medicaid and services would be paid for directly by the client.
I don’t live in Texas. Can you still help me?
Legal physical therapy practice laws govern how a physical therapist is able to treat in a state other than their own. Currently, the “PT Compact” allows therapists to treat clients in other states belonging to this “PT Compact.” Unconstipated Kids is able to treat clients who are residents of the following states:
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- North Carolina
- North Dakota
- South Carolina
- West Virginia
