Insurance and Financial Considerations

Most major insurance plans cover pain medicine services. But insurance policies vary, so please check with your insurance carrier.

Patient Forms

New and returning patients should print, complete and bring a medication reconciliation form to the appointment.

What to Expect

When you come to the Pain Center for your appointment, please:

  • Leave any valuables or jewelry at home
  • Bring your insurance card and photo ID

For many of our procedures, you will need to arrange for transportation home. Your physician will let you know if you will be able to drive home when you discuss the procedure.
