Premera Massage Therapy Prescription Requirements

The August edition of Premera’s “Washington Network News” explains to referring providers the requirements for a massage therapy prescription:

Referring provider’s offices can expedite treatment for members by including the following information on the prescription:

  • Member/patient name
  • Prescribing provider name
  • Prescribing provider phone number
  • Diagnosis (preferably ICD-9 code)
  • Frequency of treatments (e.g. twice a week for three weeks) or number of visits including start and end date (e.g., six visits June 1-July 31)

Premera patients: Please make sure that the prescription from your doctor includes all of the information above.
