What insurance does Franklin Primary Care take?
If you have health insurance, it is only logical that you would want to receive primary care services from a clinic that recognizes and accepts your insurance so that you can reap the benefits of your insurance coverage. However, having a health insurance plan does not automatically mean that primary care doctors will accept that insurance. With that in mind, here is some information on how to make sure you receive primary care services from doctors and clinics that accept your insurance.
Most primary care physicians accept medical insurance, including family medicine doctors, internal medicine doctors, and pediatricians. However, doctors are not required to accept medical insurance for their services. The reasons that some medical doctors do not accept insurance usually amount to matters of practicality and convenience, as there can be extra paperwork, and insurance companies do not always reimburse doctors the amount they believe they are entitled to.
While most doctors accept insurance, not all services provided by doctors are covered by insurance. With that being said, most essential medical services are covered by insurance plans. Medical services that insurance plans do not typically provide coverage for cosmetic treatments, non-essential surgeries, or services that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not recognize or approve.
With that in mind, it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with the medical services your health insurance provider covers as well as the percentage of the cost they will cover, so you will have a good idea of what to expect before your doctor’s appointment. It is also worthwhile to verify with the medical clinic you are visiting that they accept insurance and find out which health insurance plans they accept before your visit.
There are a few ways to go about finding a primary care doctor in West Hempstead who takes your insurance! One way is to call clinics you are inquiring about directly to determine if their primary care doctors will accept your insurance. Some primary care clinics may also have information posted on their website about the health insurance plans they accept.
Another way is to call your health insurance provider for information on “in-network” primary care physicians in West Hempstead that they partner with. An in-network primary care provider is a medical doctor who has partnered with a particular health insurance provider to accept their patients’ insurance coverage from that provider. You may also be able to find out that information on your health insurance provider’s website.
Online appointments with primary care physicians can typically be made on the primary care clinic’s website. We welcome you to make an online appointment with us at Franklin Primary Care!
