We accept Medicare, PPO's and HMO's. We are associated with Arch Health Partners, Sharp Community Medical Group, Inland North and Scripps Health, Escondido.
Our insurance coordinators deal with many insurance companies. We are happy to answer questions and assist you in any way possible. However, we cannot guide you in your choice of insurance coverage.
Because many Employers frequently change Insurance policies, it is sometimes difficult to accurately estimate a patient’s insurance coverage and co-payment. Many insurance companies cannot guarantee coverage for a visit until after the visit is completed. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change in your insurance. It is important that all information is current.
We accept VSP, MES, Eyemed and Spectera for routine eye exams, glasses or contact lenses.
All co-payments are payable when you check in at the front desk.
Please contact your Primary Care Physician for referral to any specialist. If a patient comes to us with a problem that they expect to be covered by their medical insurance, they must have a referral from their Primary Care Physician. Obtaining a medical referral is the patient’s responsibility. We cannot obtain the referral for you, and the referral cannot be obtained retroactively. If you do not have a referral, we will be happy to see you on a cash basis, but your medical insurance company will not pay for your visit or treatment.
We will request authorization for all follow up visits and tests, as needed related to your referred visit to our office.
As a courtesy we bill your secondary insurance for any deductible and co-insurance. If you have no secondary insurance, you are responsible for any deductible and co-insurance.
If Medicare denies your office visit or procedure, you are responsible for the charges. We do bill your secondary insurance as a courtesy.
Private and Group Insurance:
As a courtesy, we will file your insurance claims for you. Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you.
If you have any questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date on all matters of Insurances that we contract with.
