Insurance & Payment
Our primary goal is to provide you with the best treatment and service available. As a courtesy to our patients, DAK will bill your insurance company on your behalf. We recommend that you verify your insurance plan benefits prior to your appointment. It is the patient’s responsibility to be aware of all medical expenses that will require co-payments, coinsurance, and/or deductibles.
Participating Insurance Plans
Health insurance plans and contracts are continually changing, therefore, we recommend you contact your health insurance carrier directly to verify our providers participate with your plan before scheduling an appointment with us. This is particularly true if you are a new patient or if your insurance has changed since you were last seen. The phone number for your insurance carrier is usually found on the back of your insurance card. If we do not participate with your insurance plan, we will gladly see you, however, you will be responsible for payment on the day services are rendered.
Our providers are specialists, and some insurance plans require the patient obtain a referral from their primary care physician before seeing a specialist. Therefore, please check with your insurance plan to determine if a referral is required. If your plan requires a referral, it is your responsibility as the patient to obtain this from your primary care provider. If you arrive for your appointment without a required referral, you can either reschedule your appointment after your referral is obtained, or assume total financial responsibility for services rendered that day.
Your insurance plan may require prior authorization or pre-approval for surgical procedures performed in the office or ambulatory surgery center. Therefore, we recommend you contact your insurance carrier to verify if prior authorization is required. If your plan requires prior authorization, it is your responsibility to notify our office of this, so we can request this from your insurance carrier.
