SB 25

Item Details

Under existing law, physical therapy may only be performed based on a referral from a licensed physician, dentist, chiropractor, physician assistant, or certified registered nurse practitioner, except in limited, enumerated circumstances that allow a licensed physical therapist to perform an initial evaluation or consultation of a screening nature without a referral. This bill would eliminate the requirement that a licensed physical therapist may only perform physical therapy, except in limited circumstances, based on a referral from a licensed health care practitioner.
