Please be aware that I bill patients directly and am "out-of-network" for all health insurance plans. As a result, I do not engage with any health insurance company. However, I can provide paperwork so that patients may seek financial reimbursement from their insurance company by submitting a claim themselves. For a full list of fees, please contact my office for further information.
It is important to note that Medicare specifically does not provide any out-of-network reimbursement.
