FINANCES AND INSURANCE

Symptom Medicine accepts Medicare and many commercial insurance plans, including HMO, PPO and EPO.  Unfortunately, health care plans do not pay for everything and medical coverage is not automatic.  Even if you and your health care provider have good reason to think you need a medical service, some services are not covered.  Before any appointment can be scheduled, you must obtain the necessary pre-authorization from your health care plan; in addition, the Clinic requires that you pay for any deductible, co-insurance, non-covered services, co-payments, and fee for services.  


If you do not have proof of insurance, recommended services are not covered or you waive all of your health care policy benefits, you may still receive services with the understanding that any non-covered or uninsured medical services will need to be paid in full before your appointment.  No matter what type of payment you choose or insurance you have, you agree to accept full responsibility to pay your account in accordance with the regular physician rates and terms of the Clinic


The cost of physician services for uninsured patients and non-covered insurance services only apply to services provided by a SxM physician.  Please inquire about are SxM’s hourly physician rates.  The physician rate does not include and is not limited to facility fees, medication cost, nursing services, physicians or health care provides not employed by SxM, hospital fees, laboratory fees, radiographic studies, radiographic studies, psychological evaluations, administrative fees, and so forth.   For more details read the documents listed below.
