Before Your Appointment

Our insurance verification specialist will contact your carrier prior to your first appointment to determine your plans benefits and coverage for your treatment. Additional calls may be made to your carrier after your treatment plan is determined. Our insurance verification specialist will discuss your plans benefits and any out of pocket expense you may incur.
