Insurance & Billing Information
Important Notice: Out of Network with Cigna®
We are now out of network with Cigna®.
After several months of negotiations with Cigna®, we were unable to complete a contract.
As of January 1st, all of our doctors, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, urgent care centers, imaging centers, laboratories and home health centers nationwide, are out of network for all patients with
Cigna commercial insurance.
What this means for patients with Cigna® insurance:
Now that we are out of network with Cigna®, we are focused on helping our patients through this transition. It is important to know the following:
- Emergency Care: Emergency care access is not impacted. Patients with Cigna® insurance can continue to receive emergency care at our Emergency Rooms, regardless of our network status with Cigna®.
- Continuity of Care: Certain patients may be eligible to receive “Continuity of Care” benefits with Humana for a period of time if they need ongoing treatment or already have a procedure scheduled. For questions about ongoing care or benefits coverage, please encourage patients to call the phone number listed on the back of their Humana insurance card
- Out-Of-Network Care: Patients with Cigna® insurance may still access our health care providers and hospitals for health care services using their out-of-network benefits.
Please encourage patients to visit www.ProtectMyAccess.com or call (800) 290-0836 for more information.
We remain open to discussions with Humana should they decide to fully commit to completing a contract.
Thank you for your continued support and patience as we work through this transition.

Unless you are a member of one of our contracted insurance plans, or Medicare, full payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
If the physician is contracted with your plan, the majority of members covered under this type of plan are still required to make some type of payment for service that is rendered to them. This may be in the form of co-payment, deductible, or co-insurance. If your plan has a co-payment, you will be expected to pay your co-payment prior to being seen by the doctor. Co-payments, deductibles and co-insurance are requirements of your insurance plan and we are required under our contract with these plans to collect these amounts from you.
Most of the members covered under HMO plans also owe co-payments. Co-payments will be collected prior to being seen by the doctor. We are required under our contract with these plans to collect these amounts from you.
Balances on Account
All previous balances are to be paid in full prior to additional services being rendered.
Should it become necessary for us to utilize the services of an outside collection agency in order to collect the amounts that are owed, you will be liable for agency/attorney fees.

I hereby authorize my insurance benefits to be paid directly to the above-signed physician realizing I am responsible to pay non-covered services and I hereby authorize the release of pertinent medical information to insurance carriers.
