What To Expect
Patients are typically referred by their primary care physician who is educated about the benefits of Interventional Pain Management.
Other referring physicians include:
- Family Practice
- Internal Medicine
- Orthopedic Surgery
- Occupational Medicine
- Physical Medicine & Rehab
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
Because pain management is a specialty practice, you may be required to obtain a referral. It is your responsibility to obtain this referral from your primary care physician and bring this with you to your appointment. This referral is needed in order to obtain reimbursement from your insurance company.
We need to make a copy of the front and back of your insurance card. This is done so that when we file a claim to your insurance company, we will ensure that we have all the correct information specific to your coverage.
It is strongly suggested that you verify coverage with your insurance company prior to your visit, if possible. It is your responsibility to make sure your visit will be covered. We will assist you if needed in order to verify benefits, but we cannot guarantee payment by your insurance company.
In order to improve patient care and efficiency we have made some of our forms available for you to download. Please read the New Patient Letter and HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices and then print and complete Forms #1-4 and bring to your first appointment.
