Medicare is the federal government program that provides health care coverage (health insurance) for people who are 65+ or those who are under 65 and receiving Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for a certain amount of time. The program is run by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and funded in part by the Social Security and Medicare taxes you pay on your income, through premiums paid by people receiving Medicare, and by the federal budget.

As you review your Medicare options, you may want to consider a Medicare Advantage plan. Medicare Advantage plans help simplify Medicare and typically offer more cost-effective benefits than Original Medicare or a Medicare Supplement plan.
Medicare Advantage is a popular type of Medicare health plan that’s offered by private insurance companies that Medicare approves. In fact, more than 20 million Medicare beneficiaries choose to receive their coverage through a Medicare Advantage plan.
A Medicare Advantage plan (also called Part C) combines Part A, Part B, and often Part D into one plan. It provides value to consumers by offering comprehensive coverage with a reasonable monthly premium and often fixed copays. Additionally, a Medicare Advantage plan often covers services not covered by Original Medicare, such as annual vision, hearing, and dental benefits and fitness memberships.

In order to keep costs down, we expect payment at the time of service. Co-payments will be collected when you arrive, prior to your visit with the physician. We accept cash, credit or debit cards, and checks. If you have a balance, payment must be made within 30 days unless arrangements have been made with the Office Manager in advance. Insurance is not a substitute for payment. We will bill your insurance company for covered services, but you are responsible for co-payments, deductibles and non-covered services at the time of service.
