What are FitMed’s office hours?

FitMed Partners’ hours are Tuesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our founder, Bright McConnell, III, MD, also serves Charleston Sports Medicine, so his week is divided between the two offices.

Will insurance reimburse me for the services you provide?

Typically, because most of our assessments and treatment recommendations may be considered preventive in nature, many insurance companies and government programs (Medicare) do not cover professional fees, prescriptions, or labs. FitMed does, however, facilitate reimbursement for non-Medicare clients by providing them with the information needed to file for out-of-network insurance benefits, if applicable, although payment is expected at the time of service. Additionally, various programs designed to give individuals tax advantages to offset health care costs are available.

Will Medicare benefits cover your services?

We do not file for or accept Medicare.

Does FitMed Partners offer any payment plans?

Payment is collected at the time of service. Long-term programs allow for monthly payments.
