Each of us is a participating provider in almost all of the HMO's and PPO's in the area. In particular, we do participate in all of the Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans, Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan, Tufts Health Plan, and Fallon Health Plan.
If your plan requires a co-pay for office visits, we do ask that you pay it at the time of each visit. Payments can be made in the form of cash, check, Master Card, Visa, or American Express. If you have an indemnity insurance plan, we will submit claims directly to your insurance company as a courtesy to you. Please be aware that the bill is ultimately your responsibility, and that if there is a problem with the insurance company we will expect you to pay the bill and deal with the company yourself. We will only bill you directly if the insurer has not paid us within 45 days. We do ask that you pay us at the time of the visit if you know that you have not met your insurance deductible. Please contact our office in regards to any insurance questions or payment plan options.
If your plan requires referrals for visits to specialists, it is your responsibility to obtain the referral from our office staff well in advance of the visit, and to be aware in advance of when referrals run out and need to be renewed. We can only process a referral once you have made an appointment and have an appointment date. Do not assume that we have taken care of the referral if your doctor recommends that you see a specialist. You must make an appointment first, then contact our office to request the referral. Please allow our staff plenty of notice when requesting referrals.
