Insurance Plans – Referrals – Authorizations
Our contracts with insurance carriers are subject to change. Check with your carrier to make sure we are listed as a provider. In some instances, a referral may be needed from your primary care provider. If that is the case, it is the patients responsibility to obtain the referral. If you come to our office without a referral and are seen by the doctor, you will be responsible for the service.
All insurance plans are NOT created equal, your plan may require a copay to see a specialist, a deductible to be paid at the beginning of each policy year for office visit or for out patient surgeries, you might even have a different one for DME products. You might have a co-insurance plan but not a secondary insurance policy. There might be an exclusion in your policy that states you can not see a specialist or you can only see a specialist a few times per year. All of theses are taken into consideration when your insurance company tells us what we are to collect at time services are rendered. It is impossible to know, 100%, what your cost will be. After the electronic claims have been sent, your insurance company will send you the Explanation Of Benefits or EOB about 7-10 days before we receive it. Only after that, will we know the final cost of each visit. A statement will be sent to you for the remaining amount due to Highlands Foot & Ankle, LLC.
