Payment policy

Family Foot Care accepts many types of Insurance Plans. Effective January 2020, please be aware of the many changes in Healthcare, such as Blue Cross Blue Shield discontinuing certain plans and the need for referrals for United Health Care. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY WORKMANS COMPENSATION CASES.

 

Listed below are the approved types of Insurances and any requirements needed:

 

Health plans
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield plans - Referrals are not needed with the basic plans, however, if you have a Deductible Plan, you will be responsible to pay the amount at the time of your visit or a flat fee.  Flat fees are consistent with new patient and existing patient fees who do not have insurance.

  • Medicare Blue Choice - Referrals are no longer required to make an appointment or scheduling your follow-up appointment.

  • MVP plans are accepted with no referrals.  Diabetics will be charged no Co-Pay until further notice per MVP.

  • MVP Option is NOT accepted at Wayne County locations, which is where our Williamson office is located.

  • Child Health Plus & Family Health Plus - Referrals are not required any longer as of 2015.

  • Aetna - You will need to check your card to see if a referral is required. If you do require a referral, you will need to get in contact with your Primary Care Physician to obtain this referral number. If you do not require a referral number, you can simply call to make an appointment.

  • Fidelis - We do accept Fidelis, however, insurance rules requires a pre-authorization for Diabetic Shoes and/or Orthotics. 

  • Medicare is accepted with no referrals, however, if you have not met your yearly deductible, you may be responsible for any balances.  

  • Medicare Advantage plans are also accepted, but may be subject to a co-pay or all balances due.

  • Cigna, Tri-Care and Empire are accepted.

  • United Health Care and United Health Care COMMUNITY PLANS DO now require a referral to be seen by a Podiatrist.  Please contact your PCP to obtain this referral number prior to your visit with Family Foot Care.

 

 

Please remember that all co-payments are due at the time of your visit. 

If a Referral is needed in order to be seen by Family Foot Care, it is up to your Primary Care Physician to obtain this referral prior to your appointment.

If you have a deductible plan, we are able to tell you your allowable amount.  

We will collect a flat fee of $75.00 until we receive your actual amount due from your insurance company. Fees may apply for Xrays taken or procedures that are done at the time of your appointment.

Please note that socks, any and all foot care products and OTC insoles are NOT covered by insurance.
