Frequently asked questions
Do I need a referral or prescription for physical therapy before booking with you?
No. Colorado is considered a direct access state meaning you do not need a physician referral to begin physical therapy. Your physical therapist is highly trained in musculoskeletal conditions and differential diagnosis. You will be referred to a licensed practitioner of medicine if symptoms are outside the scope of PT practice. However, if you are submitting for reimbursement from your health insurance provider, they may require a prescription.
Do you accept my insurance?
Avid Physical Therapy currently accepts Medicare, United Healthcare, and Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield as an in-network provider. For all other plans, Avid Physical Therapy is an Out-of-Network (OON) Provider. This structure allows us to provide consistent, quality driven, and individualized care. As a courtesty to our patients, we are happy to check your Medicare, United Healthcare, and Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield benefits for you. If you have questions regarding your OON benefits, please see the attached benefits worksheet or contact us directly.
