Do I need to see a doctor first?

No. The State of Maine allows any person to receive physical and occupational therapy for 10 visits or 30 days (whichever comes first) without a referral from a physician. However, certain insurers and insurance policy types require a referral before treatment will be authorized. Worker’s compensation does not allow treatment without a doctor’s referral. If you have any questions regarding your physical or occupational therapy benefits, please call your insurance company for information. We have provided an outline for your assistance when verifying physical and occupational therapy benefits.
