Does Physiotherapy III require a doctor’s referral in order for the client to receive services?
No, is the short answer. Physiotherapists like to work closely with your physicians, but a referral from your family doctor is not necessary. The longer answer is that some extended health plans may require a referral before they will fund or provide reimbursement for your treatments. It is important to check with your extended health plan beforehand. If you qualify for OHIP funded services - a physician or nurse practitioner referral is needed.
