Do you accept my insurance?
To find out if Dr. Harry Shufflebarger is considered in-network with your insurance you should contact your insurance company. If you are visiting from out-of-state, be sure to ask if your insurance has out-of-state benefit coverage. Your insurance carrier should also be able to inform you of any copays, coinsurance, or deductibles you may be responsible for.
If I am in-network are all services considered in-network?
No. While your insurance may consider the Dr. Shufflebarger to be in-network, not all services may be considered in-network. Oftentimes insurance companies have negotiated contracts with particular providers to provide laboratory, x-ray, physical therapy, and other services. Your insurance company may not cover x-rays, laboratory services, physical therapy, etc. provided by the Paley Institute and St. Mary’s Medical Center. If your insurance does not cover these services, ask your provider for a prescription for the x-rays. You will need to bring these x-rays with you to your appointment.
Which payments are due at the time of my clinic visit?
All copayments and coinsurances are due before we provide service. The amount we collect at the time of your visit is an estimate. If you require additional services, the total charges may differ from what we originally estimated. After insurance pays their portion, you are responsible for any balance due.
What types of bills could I receive after surgery?
The bill you receive may contain multiple itemized bills, including inpatient, physician services, medical equipment, anesthesiologist, radiologist, and hospitalist. If you have any questions about understanding your bill, please contact our office (561) 844-5255.
