Insurances for which we may be contracted providers:
Please note that our practice periodically must close to new patients in order for us to best serve our current patients. We are currently closed to new Medicare patients, except for family members in the same household as current patients, or current patients converting to Medicare as they age. This list is subject to change at any time, and not a guarantee that we accept the following plans at this time. The most current information is available by calling our office. Please bring your Benefits Booklet to your visit in case you need referral to a lab, imaging, or pharmacy.
COVERED CALIFORNIA/ 'OBAMACARE" please see your employer's benefits administrator because we do not accept all versions of its plan YOU CAN GET HELP AT COVERED CALIFORNIA's website click here
ADVENTIST RISK MANAGEMENT
If you have a different plan from the list above, We can still provide you care on a "non-contracted provider" basis. What this means is that we will still bill your insurance for you; but you may have a larger co-payment at time of service; and you will be billed for any amount that your insurance company does not pay, which you then must pay personally. Alternatively, you can pay us in full at the time of service and we can have your insurance company pay you. This probably does not affect your ability to use your insurance with labs, x-ray, other specialists or hospitals. If this plan is acceptable to you, all you need to do is bring your Insurance Benefits Booklet with you to your appointment (if you can't find yours, ask your employer for another copy), and be prepared to make a larger co-payment as specified in the Benefits Booklet. (It might be as little as $10)
All co-payments, deductibles and fees for non-insured services
are due at the time of your appointment.
We do not accept MediCal or Health Plan of San Mateo except as a secondary insurance for our Medicare patients. We do not accept most Covered California plans. You must provide us with your health plan card and/or all information necessary for us to bill your insurance carrier, or the fee for your visit will be due at the time of your appointment. You may need to obtain pre-authorization from your carrier in order to avoid unnecessary cost to you for care that may not be included in your plan. Please familiarize yourself with what your plan coverage is, or contact your personnel department or insurance carrier.
If you have a question about our billing or coverage under your insurance, please call our billing office at 415-493-3300 or ask at the reception window.
