The Women’s Center for GI Health participates in many insurance plans. As a service to our patients, we file all office and procedure charges to the insurance carriers; however, to ensure accuracy, we ask that your current insurance information be provided to us at each visit. We do not guarantee that your insurance plan will pay any portion of your bill with us. We do require co-payments, payments for non-covered services and any percentage responsibility you have under your plan at the time of your visit. If our practice does not participate in your health plan the total cost of your visit is expected at the time of service. We accept payment by cash, check, Visa and MasterCard. We encourage you to verify, through our office staff, as to whether we are currently contracted with your insurance plan.
Please be aware that many insurance plans require a referral from your primary care physician for consultations and treatment, and a separate approval for procedures. Contact your primary care physician prior to your appointment to obtain a referral if one is required. We will gladly assist you in the process of obtaining approval for procedures; however you must be proactive and ensure that your plan has approved your consultation and procedure.
Should you arrive for an appointment at our office and your referral has not been received, you will be offered the option of signing a waiver and paying for the visit at the time of service, or you may reschedule the appointment for a later date to allow additional time to obtain the referral.
