Do you do house calls?

Do you accept my insurance for house calls?
We do not accept insurance for house calls; however, some insurance companies will reimburse you for the out-of-pocket cost of house calls. We can do all the paperwork on your behalf to try to get you all your money back.
But I have Medicare, you must accept that?
We do not accept Medicare; however, we have some Medicare patients who have gotten reimbursed by Medicare. We can help submit all paperwork on your behalf to try to get you reimbursed from Medicare; however, note that since we don't participate with Medicare, we are legally obliged to tell you that you can seek care from physicians and other health care providers who do accept Medicare and that Medicare may not reimburse you for any medical services we provide.

Do you accept my insurance for office visits?
We do accept some insurance plans as out of network providers for office visits only. In general, the plans we can work with are called "PPO" insurance plans.

If all this sounds confusing, that's because it is. Contact us and we can help.
