I do not accept insurance for my physician fee, while lab, radiology tests and medications are covered as usual by commercial health insurance and Medicare. Payment is requested in full at the time of your appointment. I accept Visa, Master Card, American Express and debit cards. Payment is due at the time of your visit. NM gross receipts tax of 7.5% is added to the physician fees.

What Billing Information Will I Receive?
After your visit, you will receive a receipt of payment from me that also includes a description of services received and diagnosis codes. If you are covered by an insurance plan that includes out of network benefits or if you have a health savings account, you may be able to submit this receipt to your insurance company for reimbursement.
How Much Will I Pay Out Of My Own Pocket For Endocrine Care?

: PRESCRIPTION COVERAGE
How will my medication be paid for?
In general, if you have health insurance, then the medications I prescribe will be covered by your insurance according to your prescription benefit coverage. Most insurance companies cover prescriptions regardless of whether or not the prescribing physician is a contracted network provider, with the exception of New Mexico Medicaid/Centennial.
If you are covered by a special plan that restricts prescription benefits to a particular network of prescribers, then please contact them to inquire about this issue.
If you do not carry health insurance, I will assist you in creating a medication regimen that can be purchased in cash at the most affordable prices.
