Direct Access

The Board's statutes do not address direct access (which means that a referral by a doctor is not necessary for care by a physical therapist or occupational therapist). It is the Board's opinion that Alaska is a direct access state; however, licensees and consumers should be aware that insurance companies may have their own directives regarding this topic.
