Referrals depend upon your insurance plan. Some insurance companies do require a referral, but even if yours does, we will help you through the process of getting authorization for your care.

Core Physical Therapy is happy to say we accept most major insurance plans, including both Medicare, NH Medicaid, Mass Health, Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, and more.


We also accept workers compensation and automobile med pay.  We can help you with authorization if needed.

Do I need a Referral?

Upon arrival you will be asked to fill out some your initial paperwork.  Once completed, your physical therapist will perform an interview designed to get information regarding the history of injury or condition.  The therapist will then perform a physical evaluation using specific objective tests and measurements to identify the injured tissue.  You'll then be provided with information on what treatment is best for your needs, and be given your full treatment plan.

Do I need to see my doctor first?

"I am at Core for treatment right now, and have been a few times in the past. I find their treatment both appropriate and accomidating."

- John P.

"I have been having back issues for quite some time and my doctor finally ordered me to attend physical therapy. I found Core and could not be happier with their services. There was always someone available when I went to schedule appointments and they were incredibly flexible when an urgent situation came up and I had to reschedule last minute.


The staff worked extensively to identify the issue in my back and explain the causes that led to all of my pain. After serveral weeks my pain was 100% gone and I have Tammy to thank. I couldn’t be happier with my experience."

- Vanessa L.



Although it is not always necessary to see your physician before starting physical therapy it is generally recommended.  Your physician can evaluate your condition and prescribe medication as needed and order diagnostic testing such as x-ray, MRI, CT scan, blood work etc.  This cannot be done by the physical therapist.  Also, although some insurance plans do not require PCP referrals, many require a physician's order to establish medical necessity.
