Most common questions:

Q:  Will my health insurance cover Medical Massage?
A:  As long as you truly have a medical condition where you have discomfort or pain, there are many different ways to get some type of insurance coverage for your medical massage treatments.  Our office manager at the Medical Massage Center of Charleston has had many years of experience billing insurance for massage therapy treatments and knows the "in and outs" of getting your insurance to cover the majority of your massage treatment costs.


Q:  Will medical massage really help me with my condition?
A:  Our therapists have over a 95% success rate with most cases that involve the muscle-skeletal system.  We are able to help our clients / patients where they have tried many other types of health care modalities that were not able to offer them any relief. Our approach is unique and different even when you compare it to other massage techniques, chiropractic, physical therapy or pharmacologically based treatment.  Aren't you tired of not finding a solution to your pain?  Aren't you tired of consistently having to medicate yourself to receive any relief?


Q:  Does it really cost $10 to be treated at the Medical Massage Center of Charleston?
A:  Depending on your insurance plan it is our experience that our clients / patients will usually have to pay any where from $10 - $30 co-payment once they have met their deductible.  Compare this to the average charge of $80 - $120 for similar type of massage treatment if you were to pay straight out of pocket.


Q:  How long does a Medical Massage session last?
A:  Our Medical Massage therapy treatments tend to last about an hour and ten minutes.


Q:  Why hasn't my doctor ever recommended that I receive Medical Massage Therapy?
A:  Well, to be quite honest we're not sure.  We do know that more and more medical doctors are prescribing and recommending massage therapy for a variety of health conditions.  In a survey of 751 physicians when asked about their experience with complementary and alternative medicine*, massage proved the most used and recommended therapy.  70% of the surveyed physicians either reported personal use of massage therapy or stated that they would be likely to recommend massage therapy to their patients.*
*Winslow LC, Shapiro H. Physicians want education about complementary and alternative medicine to enhance communication with their patients. Archives of Internal Medicine 2002:162, pp1176-81.


Q:  I have been denied coverage by health insurance before, should I still contact you to see if my health insurance will cover medical massage at your clinic?
A: YES! It may not matter if you have been denied health insurance coverage for massage in the past.  We have many different options that may still allow you to get the massage treatment you need covered by some form of insurance.  You don't know if you don't try.  The first step is to fill out our Medical Massage verification of benefits form.  Let us work for you and allow us to use our expertise to gain authorization for your massage treatments.


Q:  Do I need a doctor's referral to the Medical Massage Center of Charleston to have my Medical Massage treatments covered by my health insurance?
A:  Not necessarily.  The Medical Massage of Charleston has a network of primary care physicians who may be able to authorize your Medical Massage care without you obtaining a prescription for your massage treatments.  The first step is to fill out our Medical Massage verification of benefits form.  Let us work for you and allow us to use our expertise to gain authorization for your massage treatments.
