We participate in several insurance plans at Dearborn Allergy & Asthma Clinic, P.C. in Dearborn, Michigan, and we also accept self-pay. Call us if you have questions, but be aware that the patient is responsible for verifying coverage. We will provide the necessary documents for filing claims and, in many cases, do the billing for the patient. But since the insurance is a contract between the insurance company and the patient, the ultimate responsibility for service fees resides with the patient. Payment and co-payments must be paid at the time of service. We accept credit card payments.
We participate with Medicare and all Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans. We also participate with many other insurance programs. Blue Care Network DOES require a referral document from your primary care physican and must be presented prior to or at the time of appointment.
Patients should bring referral approval forms with them to the appointment. These include not only approval for the office visit, but also approval for necessary tests, including allergy skin testing and breathing tests. If a health plan refuses to pay for services that have been performed, responsibility for the bill reverts to the patient, so it’s best to have the referral before the visit. We can no longer bill the copay amounts at a later date.
