Insurance Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you take private insurance?
No; we do not accept private insurance because we find the restrictions that insurance companies impose on patients and their physicians has gotten in the way of delivering the excellent care that we strive to provide. Our primary goal is to meet the individual neurologic needs of each patient, rather than focus on the requirements of insurance companies. We prefer to spend more time with you, and less time in the bureaucratic red tape.
2. What about Medicare or Medicaid?
We do not accept Medicare or Medicaid for the same reasons that we do not accept private insurance.
3. What are the costs for the services?
We offer monthly membership to our patients. Many patients find incredible value by participating in a monthly membership plan. We also can provide a fee for service option on a limited basis. Please email or call for specific details.
4. What forms of Payment do you accept?
Cash, check, debit card, health savings account debit/credit cards, credit cards including Visa, Master Card, American Express and Discover.
5. Can I use my Health Savings Account credit or debit card?
6. When is payment due?
At the beginning of each visit.
7. Can I submit the bill to my insurance?
Yes, we will provide you with an itemized bill and visit notes within forty-eight (48) hours after your visit. You can choose to submit the bill to your insurance company. All private insurance companies pay for services according to their own rules. Therefore, we cannot guarantee payment from your insurance company.
8. Can I submit the bill to Medicare?
Dr. Boland has opted out of Medicare. For this reason, Medicare cannot be billed for any services that she provides to you. If you are eligible for Medicare, you will need to sign a Medicare Opt Out and Waiver Agreement, which is an agreement between you and Dr. Boland that states neither you nor Be Mobile Neurology will bill Medicare for any services Dr. Boland provides to you.
9. What about labs, imaging, and prescriptions?
You are free to use Medicare or your private health insurance, just as you normally would, for any services not provided by Be Mobile Neurology.
