PPOs & HMOs
***Did you know? Many ER copays are higher than the cost of a house call!!!
House call services are reimbursed by PPOs (up to 80%) and non-local area HMOs (up to 100%). However, do not assume that you will be reimbursed. Insurers like to keep your money as much as you want it for yourself.
We do not bill any domestic insurers directly (includes Anthem, Blue Shield, Blue Cross, Cigna, Aetna, United, Brown & Toland, Tri-Care, and Kaiser).Your reimbursement will be based upon out-of-network rates which are determined by each individual insurer. If you have a low annual deductible for out-of-network services, then you may receive substantial reimbursement. However, if your annual unmet deductible for out-of-network services is high, then you should expect minimal reimbursement.
We provide a completed claim form which patients may submit to their insurer for reimbursement.
Please contact your insurance provider directly to determine your estimated reimbursement.
