Billing & Insurance Coverage

Billing & Insurance Coverage

Q: Is your surgery covered by my insurance? Does your office verify what is covered by insurance well in advance of any procedures?

A: We accept all insurances except one access plan called “Care First”. Our office authorizes all procedures in advance with the appropriate payer.

SuperPATH total hips bill identically to that of a standard total hip replacement with all providers, including Medicare. Likewise, MAKOplasty knees bill identically to any partial knee replacement, and patient-specific total knees bill identically to that of any total knee replacement.

Any further billing inquiries should be directed to our billing department. I try to distance myself from the finances for ethical reasons.
