Referrals / Prescriptions
Ascension Wellness requires all insurance patients to verify massage therapy benefits with their insurance company and to fax a medical referral to our office at (206) 577-3950 prior to their first appointment. Patients that do not have a referral for their first visit will be required to pay out-of-pocket for their visit or to postpone their visit until a referral can be acquired.
Treatment frequency and number of visits will be determined based on medical necessity, by following the the medical treatment plan and at times, preauthorization from insurance companies.
Some insurance plans state that referrals or prescriptions are not necessary for massage therapy. However, massage therapists can not diagnose and still need to have a current medical diagnosis from a chiropractor, naturopath or medical doctor in order to bill for massage and to show medical necessity. The easiest way to prove you have a medical necessity and to prevent insurance non-payment is to acquire a referral or prescription from your primary care provider. Ascension Wellness works closely with many medical professionals in the area. If you need a recommendation for a reputable doctor in the area, feel free to contact Ascension Wellness or look at our Wellness Partners page.
Ascension Wellness also offers complementary insurance benefits checks. Call (206) 878-WELL to find out more information. In order to verify insurance, Ascension Wellness will need the following information:
