  • Photo ID issued by a local, state or federal agency, or 
  • Two forms of non-photo ID provided that at least one is issued by a local, state or federal agency (ex. Social Security card and a utility bill)

Referral Required
A referral is required by state law to initiate treatment by a licensed physical therapist. The state of Indiana requires a referral for both evaluation and treatment of a patient. Referral to Physical Therapy should be in writing and signed by the primary provider. A referral can come from a family physician, an internal medicine physician, an OB/ GYN, a surgeon, a physician's assistant, a nurse practitioner and any other medical specialist.
