Referrals & Access
How to refer to the Center for Life
All patients requesting Integrative Medicine Consultations, Acupuncture and/or Chiropractic, need to be referred by a primary care provider, even if your insurance does not require this. This is done to ensure good communication between all providers. For UNM Providers, use the electronic medical record system to submit referrals. Our clinic will process the referral and call the patient. For non-UNM providers, please fax referrals to (505) 925-4539.
Other services-such as massage, healing touch, and educational classes (like MBSR, Meditation and Nia) do not require a referral and are "paid-up-front" (that is, paid for with cash, check, or credit card at the time of the appointment).
Coverage varies by insurance carrier, type, and services. Not all services are covered by insurance or Medicare but many of our services are covered by third party insurance.
10% off of self-pay services for UNM employees [Seniors (65+), UNMH, HSC, UNM Medical Group, UNM Students, Main Campus - sorry, not for family members].
The UNM Center for Life will be charging for appointments for which patients do not arrive to the clinic either canceling the same day or no showing for the appointment. This charge is $25.00. Should you find that you need to cancel an appointment, please call (505) 925-7464 at least 24 hours in advance or for a Monday appointments call by 4:00 PM the previous Friday. One of our staff members will be glad to cancel and reschedule your appointment.
For any questions about billings or denials and/or patient complaints, please call UNM Center for Life at (505) 925-7464 (RING), option 1.
