Referrals and Payments


We welcome provider referrals for patients who have acute or chronic pain. We request that a written referral completed by a treating provider, along with all other pertinent records, be forwarded to our Center prior to the initial appointment with the patient.

For toll free numbers, providers 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 University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute for a facility fee and another for the physician's professional fee. Questions regarding professional fee bills may be directed to the Department Of Anesthesiology billing office at 667-214-1616. Questions regarding University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute bills may be directed to 410-821-4140.
