Our Policy on Health Insurance
To most people, health care is very confusing. Instead of doctors, most people assume
that health care is about insurance. Yet, it is your doctor who knows you and of whom
you can trust that really matters. Furthermore, insurance premiums and deductible
costs are rising and the true value of those costs needs to be questioned. Indeed, the
best use of insurance is to cover oneself for catastrophic medical conditions only and
pay for most doctor visits and prescriptions directly.
Our office accepts Medicare as payment for your services. For most insurances, our
policy is that we require payment of our discounted fees up front and offer to bill your
insurance for your services as a courtesy. Whatever your insurance pays, we reimburse
back to you. We do this because of higher deductibles and uncertainties about what
insurances will reimburse. Having utilized this policy for the past 15 years, I am
confident that you will appreciate the generous time for office visits and the
comprehensive care that you will receive. I can also assure you that we do our best to
make office visits affordable.
I have been in private practice for over 32 years and have strived to make myself
available for timely appointments, phone calls, and emails. Optimal health care really
does depend on this and we will make it happen for you.
In addition, we have a program where patients pay $95 per month for 12 month cycles
and are afforded unlimited office visits, including all labs and EKGs. This has been
particularly appealing to individuals with various chronic medical conditions, including
diabetes, high blood pressure, and many others. And the best way to avoid catastrophic
medical conditions is to take care of your health preventatively.
The practice of medicine is really an art based on the doctor’s knowledge, education,
training, and experience. There are options, but good judgement by your doctor
requires curiosity, sufficient time, and genuine concern for your well-being. We can
provide this for you regardless of your insurance and I am always available as a second
opinion, as well.
