Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a written prescription from my Doctor for physical therapy?
The State of Michigan no longer requires a physician’s signed prescription for physical therapy. The State allows therapists to perform an evaluation and provide treatment without a prescription for 21 days or 10 visits, whichever comes first. There are a few other circumstances when you should see a Doctor. Some insurance companies still require a prescription for physical therapy. Call our office with you insurance information and we will check for you.
What should I bring with me on my first visit?
Please bring your prescription (see above), your driver’s license (or other valid I.D.), insurance cards, and appropriate attire (sports/loose clothing, closed toe shoes, we have private changing areas for you).
What if I was injured on the job or in an auto accident?
CGPT accepts both Worker’s Compensation claims and Auto injury claims. Once you have filed a claim with your employer (for worker’s comp) or your auto insurance company (for auto injury accidents), we will contact the insurer for approval of physical therapy.
