- What to Expect -
What you should expect at your first appointment.
Each physical therapy appointment at Iowa City Physical Therapy will last approximately 40 minutes. Our staff will conduct a thorough evaluation of your ailment and determine an appropriate plan of care to help you return to a higher level of function. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled based on the specific plan of care you and your therapist decide upon.
Do you need a referral for physical therapy?
Iowa is a direct access state which means the majority of health care insurance policies do not require a referral from a doctor or specialist for you to be evaluated and treated by a physical therapist. Medicare/Medicaid and a some private insurance polices do require a referral for physical therapy, so please contact your insurance provider to verify your coverage.
