INSURANCE INFORMATION

As a concerned provider, we understand the importance of your health care and cost. Please take a moment to review the following information regarding your medical services and insurances accepted.

Every effort has been made to ensure that our charges accurately reflect the complexity of care rendered and the skill and expertise required for your care. As a courtesy to you, we file many forms of insurance including but not limited to: Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare, United HealthCare, Aetna, Cigna, Viva, HealthSpring and PHCS.  It is your responsibility to provide accurate insurance information to ensure prompt payment.  Ultimately, all patients are responsible for their medical charges.  If no payment is received from the insurance company within 60 days of the date of service, payment will be due from the patient.

It is your responsibility to verify with your insurance carrier prior to your appointment that your plan covers the provider and services you have chosen.  If your insurance requires a referral from your primary care physician, you must obtain this prior to your appointment.

Medicaid

Our office accepts Medicaid for pregnancy and gynecological visits by referral only.  Medicaid patients requesting a visit for a gynecological problem must have the primary care provider listed on their Medicaid eligibility call our office to schedule the appointment in addition to providing a written referral.  We do not accept Medicaid for annual exams and our physicians do not participate in Medicaid's Plan First/Family Planning Program with the exception of tubal ligations.

All pregnant patients that plan to use Medicaid for their pregnancy must first enroll in the Alabama Health Network maternity program.

Alabama Health Network

Every patient that is pregnant and on Medicaid must see a care coordinator to enroll with Alabama Health Network.  You must contact your care coordinator in order to schedule your initial OB visit to see the doctor.  Please call (205) 345-1905 to enroll with Alabama Health Network and have them schedule your initial OB visit.
