Direct Care and Insurance Questions
Direct Endocrinology care is a healthcare model that operates independently of the limitations imposed by health insurance. Patients are attended to regardless of their insurance status, as the middleman (insurance) is eliminated. This model empowers doctors and patients alike, as we can dedicate more time to our patients and remain available to them even in between visits. Patients have the option to choose either a “fee-for-service” plan or a membership plan. Patients with private health insurance plans may seek reimbursement from their plan for their visits if they have an out-of-network benefit. I can provide you with a superbill that can be submitted to your insurance, and these expenses can usually be applied towards your deductible. As an “out-of-network” provider for all insurance carriers, I offer my services independently of insurance constraints.
