Our billing staff is diligent in evaluating your insurance coverage for podiatric services including office visits, X-Rays, ultrasounds, in-office surgeries, and custom-made orthotics. Every insurance plan is different and these out-of-pocket expenses come in the form of co-pays, co-insurance, and deductibles. As medical costs are being shifted from the insurance companies to the patients in the form of higher out-of-pocket costs, we believe that knowledge of these expenses may aid in appropriate treatment alternatives; This way our patients will not experience any financial surprises. However, this is a service we provide to our patients and not a guarantee of what the insurance company will reimburse us for.
