Questions for patients from out-of-state

For out of state patients what are the pretreatment requirements?

The following are prerequisites to your lymphedema treatment:

  • Letter of medical necessity from your M.D. stating you have lymphedema.
  • Prescription from your MD for treatment of lymphedema.
  • Successfully completed all informational and insurance forms.

Please fax results to (843) 785-7710 so we can review both your medical and insurance information to avoid any problems. For example, it would be unfortunate to find out that your health care coverage is not viable in this location or that you have certain restrictions in your schedule that will not allow for complete treatment at this location.
