INSURANCE COMPANY REQUIREMENTS
Joseph Surgery is contracted with most major insurance plans, including Medicare. We participate in many HMO’s and PPOs as well as many traditional health plans.
If your plan requires a referral from your primary care physician, we will work with you to make sure this referral is in place before your visit. Please be aware of your insurance company’s requirements and conditions for hospital admission. If your plan requires authorization prior to us ordering certain tests, or performing surgery, then we will obtain this for you.
For your convenience, we accept cash, Master Card and Visa credit cards for payment of services. Depending on which insurance plan you are contracted with, you may be asked to visit with one of our insurance counselors to discuss your financial responsibility prior to scheduling any surgery. Having a full understanding of your financial responsibility from the start will alleviate any confusion that may arise after your operation.
