Insurance

Health Insurance:

As a concerned provider, we understand the importance of your health care and the cost.  Please take a moment to review the following information regarding your medical services. 

Considerable care has been taken in setting our fees.  Every effort has been made to ensure that our charges accurately reflect the complexity of care rendered and the skill and expertise required for your care.

As a courtesy to you, we file many forms of insurance including but not limited to: Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Aetna, Tricare, Medicare, Viva, and Cigna.  It is your responsibility to provide accurate insurance information to ensure prompt payment.  Ultimately, all patients are responsible for their medical charges.  If no payment is received from the insurance company within 60 days, payment will be due from the patient.

 

It is your responsibility to verify with your insurance carrier prior to your appointment that your plan covers the services and provider you have chosen.  If your insurance requires a referral from your primary care physician, you must obtain this prior to you appointment. 


 

Medicaid:


 

Our office accepts Medicaid for pregnancy and gynecological visits by referral.  Medicaid patients requesting a visit for a gynecologic problem must have the primary care provider listed on their Medicaid eligibility call our office to schedule the appointment in addition to providing a written referral for the visit.  Please note: we do not accept Medicaid for Annual Exam visits. Though our physicians DO NOT participate in Medicaid's Plan First/Family Planning program, many of our Midwives DO participate in these programs. We DO NOT accept Medicaid as secondary form of payment to private insurance for non-maternity care conditions


All pregnant patients who wish to use Medicaid for their pregnancy must first enroll in the Gift of Life Maternity Program.

 


 

 

 

Gift of Life:


Every patient who is pregnant and on Medicaid must see a care coordinator to enroll in the Gift of Life Program.  You must contact your care coordinator in order to schedule you initial visit to see the doctor or midwife.
