What Types of Insurance Does Dr. Shay Accept?
Group or Individual Insurance
We accept a variety of insurances and will be happy to verify your coverage benefits. Please remember, however, that the benefits quoted to us by your insurance company are not a guarantee of payment. If we are a Participating Provider for your insurance company, we will file your claim and the only services you will be responsible for are any non-covered services, deductibles or co-pays which will be due at the time of service. All financial information and responsibilities will be explained to you before treatment is rendered. If you have any questions at all regarding your financial responsibilities at our office, please do not hesitate to ask. Our staff has years of experience and will be happy to assist you.
Patients Without Insurance or Out of Network
An increasing number of patients do not have insurance, or have plans with limited coverage, such as catastrophic policies. We have adopted several plans to ensure patients may receive the necessary care without undue financial difficulty. In most cases, we are able to provide a cash fee that is not only affordable, but also cheaper in comparison to the industry standard for insurance co-pays and deductibles.
Personal Injury or Automobile Accidents
Please notify your automobile insurance carrier of your pending visit to our office. Notify our staff immediately if an attorney is representing you so that we may contact their office and coordinate information.
If you are injured on the job, your care should be paid for under your employer’s Worker’s Compensation insurance. You will need to inform your employer of the accident and obtain the name and address of the carrier of their insurance. We will verify coverage and make all the arrangements necessary to begin treatment.
We accept Medicare patients. Our office completes and files the forms to Medicare at no charge.
Please inform us of any secondary insurance you may have. We will assist you if you need help in filing.
