The gasserian ganglion block is a well established medical procedure and is reimbursed by most insurance companies. Any need for preauthorization of services or copayments depends on your insurance carrier. Our office staff will assist you in obtaining preauthorization whenever possible. The same copayments you make at your family physician's office will often apply at the Pain Management Center.
How do I make an appointment?
Your physician should send a referral note to the Pain Management Center. The referral must include your name, address and phone number, a brief description of your condition, the physician's request for this specific procedure, and the physician's name, address and phone number. When we have received this information, we will call you to set up an appointment, often within twenty-four hours.
For faster service, your physician should fax the request to us at 650-725-7743.
