Point of Service Plans- ALL open access plans
HSA's Health Savings Account plans- although not strictly an insurance plan, patients that will be paying for their care out of an established HSA either by check/debit card etc are encouraged to ask us about our fees which are negotiable (and among the most competitive in the area). We are always willing to consider any reasonable offer and we typically give a 20-30% discount for health care consumers managing their own costs. A standard or "global" fee which will include the surgeons fee and 3 months of post-operative care with all office visits, X-rays, and physical therapy can be packaged in a customized plan for each patient for one price. Payment options can include a down payment with interest free monthly payments or payment in full after surgery (usually with an additional discount from 5-10%). Please mention this option to your doctor who can schedule a conference with our practice administrator and billing department to obtain price quotes.
All Workers' Compensation plans (ie Liberty Mutual/EICON and California state plans)
Medicare and Medicaid (including associated HMO's; NevadaCare, FamilyCare, and SeniorCare) We currently are accepting new patients but may be forced to change this policy in the future
Payment plans are also available for patients without insurance. An initial "good faith" deposit ($200) is usually required at the first office visit. NO PATIENT WILL BE DENIED CARE IF SEEN BY OUR DOCTORS IN THE EMERGENCY ROOM.
