FAQ


 

Do you take insurance?

Thank you for your interest in Elite Pain Management and Recovery Centers. We are in-network with several insurance plans. Please click here to view the list of insurances.

 

What will happen at my first appointment?

All new patients will receive a phone call prior to the initial visit to gather necessary medical history. Obtaining this information prior to the first visit is vital to being seen in our office by a provider in a timely manner.

At each appointment, patients must bring a complete list of their current medications along with their prescribed pain medication, in the original prescription container.

All new patients will be asked to provide a urine sample for a drug screen. After the initial visit, patients will undergo randomized urine drug screens determined by risk assessment.

No medication will be prescribed on the first visit. The only exception is for those patients currently being treated for opioid use disorder. Benzodiazepines and opioids are not prescribed together. If patients are currently being prescribed these medications, the provider will work to taper benzodiazepines, as this drug class is no longer recommended for long term use.

Minor children are not permitted in the office.

To ensure maximum time with our providers, please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the scheduled appointment time. An appointment may be rescheduled if patients arrive more than 15 minutes after the scheduled arrival time. If patients are unable to keep their appointment, please call to reschedule.

 

How often do I come to the clinic and when will I see progress?

This depends upon your diagnosis and progress. Some of our patients will have appointments once per week, every 2 weeks or once per month. Your progress depends upon your individual situation, including your adherence to the plan of care, other health concerns, etc.

 

How much will it cost?

Please check your insurance benefits for any co-pays, deductibles and out-of-pocket amounts. We offer a self-pay fee schedule to those without insurance.

 

What should I bring to my first appointment?

  • A current, valid government issue photo ID
