I WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING NEW MEDICARE OR MEDICAID PATIENTS UNTIL MID 2017.
ALL BILLING OF LABS OR RADIOLOGY TESTS WILL BE DONE BY THE FACILITY WHERE THEY WERE DONE AND WOULD FALL UNDER YOUR INSURANCE COVERAGE EVEN THOUGH I DO NOT TAKE INSURANCE.
FEES: (CURRENTLY DOES NOT APPLY TO MEDICARE AND MEDICADE)
EACH YEAR THERE IS AN ANNUAL FEE OF $250.00. If this is paid prior to 3-31 of that year, it is discounted to $200.00. At any other time of year it will be due at the time you request any service through the office such as a refill or an office visit.
This fee holds your place in the practice, allows us to spend extra time in getting your medications and tests authorized by your insurance company and sending your claims to them.
Fees for office visit are usually based on the time I spend with you, the level of medical complexity, risk, and the number of problems. When you come for a complete physical, I will create a comprehensive document with all of your past and current medical problems, vitals, exam and tests and medications for you to keep at home. This is for your own reference or for documentation of your medical history if you need to travel or go to the emergency room. All other lab or other tests are discussed with you in person and we will be happy to provide copies for you. Each year we will add a free preventative service as part of your physical.
