Do I need to see my doctor prior to booking a physiotherapy assessment?

Aug20th 2020

Although physiotherapists are primary care providers, some extended health insurance plans require a doctor’s referral in order to reimburse you for your physiotherapy sessions. Check with your extended health provider.

If your extended health provider does not require a physician referral, it is not necessary to see your doctor prior to having a physiotherapy assessment. However, some clients are more comfortable seeing their doctor first.
