Information For New Patients

 

MUST READ – Insurance information:

On January 1, 2021, Governor Baker signed An Act Promoting a Resilient Health Care System that Puts Patients First.

We are required to tell you what insurance products we participate in.  Here is the list.  If your insurance is not on this list, we do not have a contract with your insurance and you will be charged our usual and customary fee for a consultation which will be $650.

We will submit a claim to your insurance company and you may owe us less than that, if your insurance company provides us with an alternative agreement that they may have negotiated with one of the insurance products. If you find this paragraph confusing, you are not alone as the insurance industry makes it so complicated that it is challenging for small practices like ours to be transparent.  This is the best we can do!  If your primary care provider is in the MGB network, we are contracted through the same insurances, and you will be in network. If your PCP is outside of the MGB network, we would love to see you, and you don’t see your insurance on this list, you should always call your insurance company to double check and see if we are “in-network”, otherwise you may receive a bill from us for our full consultation fee of $650.

Important insurance information for patients from Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island and Connecticut

We are contracted with almost all of the same insurances as Newton-Wellesley Hospital. You can find a list here. Please reference this list to check if we are within your insurance network. We also accept Medicare and MassHealth within the Partners ACO.

If you have any questions, please call the phone number on the back of your insurance card and provide the NPI (see below) for our practice to see if your care with us will be covered. As a small private practice, we are unable to call your insurance provider on your behalf. The majority of our patients are from Massachusetts and New Hampshire where we are participating providers for more than 90% of our patients. If you live outside of MA or NH, it is your responsibility check with your insurance company before your appointment.

If we are not in your network, we would be happy to evaluate you for a 30 minute consultation for $650. Costs for surgery can be discussed AFTER the consult, not before. Surgical fees have a large range and will depend on many factors that will be discussed at this appointment.
