Please call the office at 847-967-5122 to see if your insurance plan covers your procedure. An increasing number of insurance plans are offering coverage for gender confirmation surgery. Our office will assist in inquiring as to whether your plan will cover the surgery, as well as submitting the relevant paperwork to your insurance company. You may still be responsible for fees such as deductibles, co-insurance, and portions of the surgical procedure not covered by insurance. Our office will review this with information with you. We also have options for those that are not covered.
If the physician is contracted with your plan, the majority of members covered under this type of plan are still required to make some type of payment for service that is rendered to them. This may be in the form of co-payment, deductible, or co-insurance. If your plan has a co-payment, you will be expected to pay your co-payment prior to being seen by the doctor. Co-payments, deductibles and co-insurance are requirements of your insurance plan and we are required under our contract with these plans to collect these amounts from you.
Most of the members covered under HMO plans also owe co-payments. Co-payments will be collected prior to being seen by the doctor. We are required under our contract with these plans to collect these amounts from you.
Balances on Account
All previous balances are to be paid in full prior to additional services being rendered.
Should it become necessary for us to utilize the services of an outside collection agency in order to collect the amounts that are owed, you will be liable for agency/attorney fees.
