Health Insurance Plan Participants
We want you to get all of the benefits you are eligible for from your health insurance coverage. Many health insurance plans require a referral from your primary care physician prior to consultation with a specialist. In addition, most plans also require preauthorization before any type of surgical procedure or laser treatment. It is your responsibility to obtain the required referral from your primary care physician. Failure to obtain a referral or preauthorization, if required, will result in your health insurance denying payment for our services. In this case, you will be held financially responsible for all services obtained through our office.
If you are uncertain whether your health insurance requires a referral or preauthorization, please call your health insurance’s customer service representative or your primary care physician’s office for more details. If you need assistance, please call our:
