Important information regarding health insurance in the new year

Published: September 29, 2022

If your insurance plan changed the first of the year, there is some key information that you must know before you visit  us or any doctor’s office .

  • REFERRALS:  If your plan requires referrals the referrals that you had last year have expired and you must have a new  referral from your primary care provider before services can be rendered.
  •  INSURANCE DEDUCTABLES: These deductibles  reset at the beginning of the year. It is important to know your out of pocket obligation so that you are financially prepared when you go to the doctor.
  • PATIENT RESPONSIBILITY The insurance industry has become such a maze and it is impossible for us or any office to know the ins and outs of thousands of plans.  It is your responsibility to become familiar with your insurance benefits and the policies of your plan.  So that you can plan for the first of the year out of pocket costs and that you will have necessary paperwork (referrals, authorization etc. )in hand so that you can be seen.
