Insurance

Advocare participates with most major insurance plans. As participation varies by region, specialty, and physician, we recommend that you contact either our office or your insurance company representative to verify that your insurance plan is accepted.

Your health insurance coverage may or may not include office visits for illness, well child examinations, vaccines or hospital care for a normal newborn. In recent years, health insurance has dramatically changed and has become increasingly complicated for patients and physicians alike. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with your insurance benefits.

Our office makes every reasonable attempt to work with both the insurance company and the patient. We are happy to assist you, for example, in completing forms so that you may be reimbursed for any funds to which you are entitled.

Although we have agreed to serve as providers for many insurance plans, the terms of the policies vary, even within a particular insurance program. It is, therefore, absolutely necessary that you understand exactly what your insurance covers and especially the requirements specific to your policy (office co-pays, deductibles, eligible hospitals, referrals to specialists, emergency care, etc.)

Please have your card with you at the time of your visit. If we file your claim, you are responsible for only the co-pay at the time of visit. If we are not a provider for your insurance, if you are not insured or we do not file with your insurance company, you may be responsible for the entire charge at the time of service.
