We are pleased to be a participating provider in the Medicare program and will file claims for Medicare beneficiaries. Patients are responsible for paying their annual deductible, if it has not yet been met. Co-insurance or non-covered services are the responsibility of the patient. If there is a supplemental coverage available, our office will file a claim to the second carrier as a courtesy; however, follow-up with the supplemental carrier, as well as amounts not paid, are the responsibility of the patient. Most supplemental and secondary insurances have a separate deductible that must be paid.
Medicare does not always cover a service. Certain types of routine care and diagnostic tests, braces, and orthotics, as stated in the Medicare benefits, may not be covered; Medicare patients should expect to be responsible for these services. Please note: this does not mean these services are not an important part of the health care being provided to you. Our office participates with most Medicare advantage plans or Medicare replacement plans. Please contact our office to verify if your Medicare Advantage plan is accepted.
