For patients with insurance, please do not assume we are in-network providers for your insurance company. Please contact your insurance company directly to verify. We are happy to assist you in filing the necessary forms to help you receive the full benefits of your coverage. As we are not a party to the agreement between you and your insurance carrier, we are not responsible for how much or when they pay the claim. You are responsible at the time of service for payment of any deductible, co-payment and any estimated balance not payable by your insurance company.
If you are unsure about your insurance or have questions, we recommend a consult appointment prior to surgery, and we can then send in a written pre-treatment estimate to your insurance carrier and gather that information on your behalf.
Please bring your insurance information to your first office visit so that we can expedite reimbursement.
