What to Expect

You may need a referral for certain therapy services if you anticipate them to be covered by your insurance plan. You can call or schedule an appointment with your primary care physician to obtain a referral for a physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy consultation. Some specialty clinics, such as orthopedics and neurology, may be able to write a referral without seeing your primary care physician depending on your insurance.

You can fax the referral to 410-550-1390 or hand-deliver to the outpatient rehabilitation department. Once the referral is submitted, the referral coordinator in our department will contact your insurance company to get a pre-authorization and/or verify benefits. Once the authorization is approved and/or benefits are verified, you will be contacted by phone to schedule an appointment.
