We welcome physician referrals for patients who have acute or chronic pain. We request that a written referral completed by a treating physician, along with all other pertinent records, be forwarded to our Center prior to the initial appointment with the patient.
For toll free numbers, physicians should call 1-800-373-4111 and patients should call 1-800-492-5538. To reach the Pain Management Center directly, call 410-448-6824.
We participate with a variety of insurance plans including Maryland Blue Shield, Medicare and many HMOs. Services requiring authorization are secured by our office staff. If a referral is required for the visit, it is the responsibility of the patient to secure this and bring it to the appointment. Patients without a required referral cannot be seen and will have to be rescheduled. Deductibles and non-covered services are the responsibility of the patient.
Patients will receive two bills for pain management services: one from Kernan Hospital for a facility fee and another for the physician’s professional fee. Questions regarding professional fee bills may be directed to the Professional Office at 410-328-6331. Questions regarding Kernan Hospital bills may be directed to 410-821-4140.
