Office Practices

Your Visits:

  • Please bring your medications with you for each office visit.
  • If you are on regular prescription medication, you will be required to have an annual visit at a minimum.
  • If you have not been seen in a year and have a health care need, you will need a visit.

Medication Refills:

  • Allow 24-48 hours notice for medication refills.
  • Check with the pharmacy first to verify that your refill has been completed.  We are unable to call patients and tell them we’ve done their refills.

Missed Appointments:

  • We expect 24-hours notice for appointment cancellations.  If you “late-cancel” and we are unable to fill your appointment time, there will be a charge for this missed appointment (minimum $25).
  • If you no-show (miss your appointment without notifying us), and you do this three times in the same calendar year, we may discharge you from the practice.

Insurance Referrals:

  • Insurance referrals can be time consuming and many insurance companies will not allow a referral to be done after the date of service.
  • Please allow one week for the office to complete your “in state” insurance referral.
  • If you are going “out of state” for medical services, your referral may take significantly longer, please plan accordingly.

Medicare and Medicare HMO Plans:

  • We have a contract with Medicare.
  • We do NOT have a contract with all the Medicare HMO plans or the Medicare Secondary insurers.  Please call the office if you think you will be changing plans.

Insurance/Payment

We take the following insurances:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Cigna
  • Medicare - We do not take all secondary Medicare insurers nor do we take all of the Medicare HMO plans.  Please check with our Office Manager.
  • Mednet – which includes Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, United Health Care and others.

If you have other insurance, payment is expected at the time of service. We will provide you with a receipt that you can send to your insurance for reimbursement. If you do not have insurance, payment is expected at time of service.
