I notice that different doctors take different insurances. Does the doctor, if he/she in his/her own clinic typically decide what insurance to accept?

I notice that different doctors take different insurances. Does the doctor, if he/she in his/her own clinic typically decide what insurance to accept?

Yes: The doctor (or medical group, or foundation) who owns the clinic gets to decide which insurance companies to be in-network with. Patients with other insurance coverage can usually still use their "out-of-network" benefits. Always try to buy better insurance (get PPO, but not HMO) so you will have out-of-network benefits, and so the doctor will have more time to visit with you. ...Read more

The free clinic told me i may have hypothyroidism. I am without insurance. What should I do? Are medical procedures costly?

The free clinic told me i may have hypothyroidism. I am without insurance. What should I do? Are medical procedures costly?

Levothyroxine: Costly medical procedures are probably not needed. "may have hypothyroidism". What did they do? If blood TSH was more than 10, then you should probably go on levothyroxine, which is not expensive, and will relieve your symptoms of hypo. If TSH is borderline elevated, or if you have no symptoms, then repeat the test. The free clinic should be able to handle this without the need for a specialist. ...Read more

Need help getting methadone for addition but my insurance doesnt cover the clinic setting just prescriptions of it can anyone help or advise?

This is a very common problem and you should look at alternative coverages that may provide better help for you. Unfortunately, this may take years to fully sort out.

Go to one and get help from a social worker to obtain health insurance. Great if you can connect to a HealthTap doctor meantime who's in your state! ...Read more

I got 2 consultations, no procedures, 2 doctors. Same reason + insurance for both visits. One doc sent unpaid balance 6 months later. Why? Code 99244

An insurance issue: Almost always, an insurance company only pays for a part of the cost of a consultation with a doctor. Depending on how much the doctor charges, how much the insurance company paid him, and whether or not the "rules" prevent him from billing the patient the remainder, the patient may end up paying a different amount at different doctors. It's just like paying for any other type of personal service. ...Read more
