(A)  PT who holds a direct access certificate may treat a person without a referral for up to 30 calendar days from the date of the first treatment. A physical therapist may not treat a person beyond 30 days from the date of the first treatment unless the person has obtained a referral from a licensed physician, dentist or podiatrist.

The date of the first treatment for purposes of this subsection is the date the person is treated by any physical therapist treating without a referral.
