One of the most asked questions involves insurance. Most patients are unfamiliar with the back office of a practice and without going into detail, medicine has become a very secretarial/coding labor intensive affair. With over 5000 codes and growing, far in excess of what should be needed or even makes sense, the process of getting paid results in increased costs and is what drives most offices to be seeing a ton of folks, to even survive.
Getting your monies worthOur belief, let’s reduce the cost and not hire unnecessary employees and focus on your needs, giving you the time needed to really thrive. By not having the high overhead, of a billing staff, we can afford to keep our rates low and be efficient. The result….. you get time with Dr. Kadish and not while he looks at a computer, but rather focuses on your needs.
Who’s in chargeThe insurance companies are the predominant player in determining the successes or failure of a practice. They essentially dictate how you interface and treat patients. Coupled with the government’s enforcement (read payment scheme) they are able to determine the extent of care as well as the type you will receive. We firmly believe that your health care should remain in your control. As an informed patient, you have the right and responsibly to determine what and how you want your health care provided. If your request, we will provide you with a receipt that can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement, direct to you. Our experience with the new insurance system has shown some success with reimbursements, especially laboratory services and HSA policies.F
