Insurance

We participate in most major medical plans, but please feel free to call our office to verify your particular coverage.

Financial

To avoid any misunderstandings, we encourage you to ask any payment-related questions when you contact us initially. We want you to concentrate on your recovery, so we will help you resolve the financial details before your operation. As a general rule, you will be expected to pay any insurance co-payment at the time of your first preoperative office conference. Then, we will bill your insurance carrier for office visits and procedures. All Medicare documentation will be handled for you through our office. If you schedule an office visit without a surgical procedure, we will file for reimbursement from your insurance carrier or health care plan.

We will provide monthly statements following your surgery to document the payments made by your insurance carrier or managed care plan. This information is provided to keep you informed about the status of your account.

Ultimately, because the payment of your account after all insurance payments are made is your responsibility, we encourage you to monitor the payments made by your insurance plan and to ask about any details or charges you do not understand.

You will receive separate billing from the facility where you have your surgery, as well as for anesthesia, radiology, assistant surgeon or lab services that may be provided.
