Our Physicians are Medicare (“Part B” – also known as “outpatient” services) contracted. If you are Medicare insured, please be informed that we will submit (“Part B” only) claims to the Medicare program on your behalf.
It is our policy to advise all Medicare patients of all possible non-covered medical services and/or durable medical goods (such as splints and braces) at all times. In the event that such (non-covered) services and/or goods are provided to you, and Medicare does not cover these items, please be informed that you will be responsible for paying for these non-covered items directly.
Also, please be informed that (as a Medicare patient) you will be required to complete and sign multiple forms, including (but not limited to the following) for the following reasons:
- To authorize the Medicare program to pay our Physicians for your services and dispensed goods,
- To authorize the sharing of your medical (and billing) information with the Medicare program, as well as any other supplemental insurance plans you designate us to bill,
- To acknowledge services and/or durable medical goods that may not be covered by Medicare (also known as an Advance Beneficiary Notice) and
- To authorize the sharing of your medical information with other healthcare professionals involved in your medical care.
We realize that forms can be cumbersome and frustrating, but we thank you in advance for understanding that we are billing a federal program on your behalf and unfortunately, they require extensive paperwork.
Our Staff is available at any time to discuss further details about your Medicare coverage.
