New Patient Forms
CMI’s forms have been updated. Please use this form below for all new patient information. Fill out and complete before your appointment.
Carolina Musculoskeletal Institute welcomes new patients! CMI works to make sure all patients are seen quickly, and treated warmly. CMI physicians’ ability to properly diagnose you depends partly on an understanding of your medical history and current conditions. If you have never been seen by a CMI physician, or if you haven’t seen one of our physicians in over a year, please fill out the patient forms.
For your convenience, you only need to print the set of PDF forms for the problem you are being seen. Please complete the forms and bring them with you along with your insurance card and a photo identification (driver’s license, state issued ID, etc).
If you have any questions regarding paperwork, please contact the CMI office at 803-644-4264
CMI is located in the Aiken Medical Center building. Aiken Medical Center is a multi-specialty office building located on the campus of Aiken Regional Medical Centers and contains numerous other medical specialties as well as an outpatient laboratory, pharmacy, and optical facilities.
Pain Management and Podiatry are located in Suite 2600. Rheumatology is located in Suite 1400.
The medical history is needed so that we may consider all possible influences on your current diagnosis and how your history, current medications and allergies may affect your treatment. Other questions are asked so that we may efficiently help you in billing the responsible party. Still other questions are asked so we may consider how your illness or injury affects the demands of your life and job.Forms for Rheumatology and Podiatry Forms for Pain Management
Our practice is open and you may call directly for an appointment. We also see patients on referral from other physicians, employers, attorneys, and insurance companies. Some insurance plans require that you be referred; if you aren’t sure, ask your insurance company.
First, check with us to make sure diagnosis and procedure codes are correct and to get a record of our pre-authorization attempts.
Second, contact your insurance agent or benefits manager. If the problem persists, write a letter or e-mail your insurance company detailing your problem.
Finally, if you need further help, write or e-mail the state insurance commissioner and your state representative and senator.
