Our Fees

Updated November 23rd, 2016

New York House Call Physicians: Your Doctor in the Family do not have any hidden fees.

We understand our fees are very expensive. Providing the highest, most timely, professional medical care is difficult and expensive on our end as well. If you cannot afford our fees and/or think our fees are "way too high, outrageous, obscene, dishonorable" please let us know why and what you think a fair fee would be for the medical care you request. We don't bargain, we do listen, are open to advice, and will work with patients to get them the best, most cost effective medical care possible.

We do not participate with Medicare or Medicaid. WE DO PARTICIPATE FOR OFFICE VISITS ONLY WITH SELECT PPO (OUT OF NETWORK) INSURANCE PLANS. This depends on your deductible and all the fine print complex details like copays, coinsurance, deductibles, etc, with your insurance plan which we are happy to help you decipher and understand.

Again, New York House Call Physicians participate with some health insurance plans as "out of network" providers for office visits only. If you have health insurance but are not sure what you benefits are, just call us, we'll help you obtain this information.

For your convenience, our billing department will file all paperwork for you to get the best reimbursement your health insurance plan allows.

 

A CREDIT CARD IS REQUIRED TO RESERVE AN APPOINTMENT FOR AN OFFICE VISIT OR A HOUSE CALL [JUST AS MANY HOTELS ASK FOR A CREDIT CARD TO SECURE YOUR RESERVATION]. CREDIT CARDS WILL BE AUTHORIZED BUT FUNDS WILL NOT BE CAPTURED WHEN YOU SCHEDULE YOUR APPOINTMENT. AUTHORIZED FUNDS WILL BE RELEASED IF YOU OPT TO PAY BY CASH, CHECK, A DIFFERENT CREDIT CARD, OR PAYPAL. AUTHORIZED FUNDS WILL BE RELEASED IF YOU CANCEL WITHIN 48 [FORTY EIGHT] HOURS OF YOUR APPOINTMENT. A 100%NON-REFUNDABLE CANCELLATION FEE IS IMPOSED FOR CANCELLATIONS WITH LESS THAN 48 HOURS ADVANCED NOTICE. (We do not like to impose cancellation fees so please be 100% certain you can commit to a scheduled appointment before scheduling).

If paying by check, please make checks payable to: DOCTOR IN THE FAMILY.

We do not accept personal checks from new patients.

If you desire medical testing or a procedure in your home but do not need to see Our Physicians, please provide an official prescription from your doctor with specific orders [including a procedural (CPT) code and a diagnostic (ICD) code].
