Whether you’re in or out-of-network, Dr. Maurer would be happy to have you as a patient.
No matter your insurance, you can still become our patient. However, you may have greater out-of-pocket expense if we don’t participate with your health insurance plan. Our office fees are based on the Medicare fee schedule, as established by the federal government. Charges for a visit are determined by the complexity of the visit, the amount of work required to analyze and manage medical problems, and whether you are a new or established patient. The Medicare fee schedule allows higher charges for new patients with complex medical problems and lower charges for established patients with less complex problems. Our office doesn’t charge any “concierge” or additional fees beyond the amounts specified by the Medicare fee schedule.
You’ll receive the same service as an out-of-network patient as you would if you were in-network. After every visit, we will take care of your paperwork and bill your insurance. If there is a difference between what your insurance company will pay and what Medicare allows for the fee, you will receive a bill for the balance. Every insurance plan is different, so we recommend that you talk to your insurance representative or ask us questions before your visit so you know exactly what to expect.
