Dr. Eric Treiber participate in many insurance plans. “Participation” means that our office submits claims for each visit electronically, and payment is sent directly to our office from the insurance company. Patients are responsible for providing accurate insurance information via a current insurance card, all necessary referrals or paper work from their referring physician and any co-payment, co-insurance or deductible at the time of each service.
Dr. E. Treiber participates in some of the plans offered by the following insurance companies. (PLEASE NOTE: Exclusions may apply.)
- Empire Blue Cross/Blue Shield (NY), no exchange plans
- Blue Cross/Blue Shield (out of NY State): PPO plans only, no exchange plans ***Excluding BC/BS Traditional/Indemnity, Pathway/Pathway Enhanced networks***
- Cigna (HMO and PPO)
- Medicare (no HMO or restricted Medicare plans)
- United Health Care
As of 2014, we do not participate in any of the Exchanges or plans offered by The Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare). We advise patients to verify coverage with our office and their insurance carrier prior to all visits.
Our office deals very efficiently with all insurance plans via a sophisticated, state-of-the-art computer system, electronic transmission of accurately coded services and diagnoses, and immediate availability of computer-generated insurance forms for patient use. We welcome all patients regardless of their insurance coverage to see our doctors on a fee-for-service basis, some patients (except in limited HMO plans) have out-of-plan options and can obtain partial reimbursement for medical or surgical visits. Patients are given a completed insurance form to submit to their carrier to obtain their own reimbursement directly. As a courtesy, our office can submit patient claims electronically on their behalf, with insurance payments going directly to the patient. Cosmetic procedures are not reimbursed by insurance.
For our patients’ convenience, we provide the following forms that can be downloaded and completed in advance of a scheduled office visit. This will make registration for your first visit much more efficient.
We hope this information clarifies our office policies and procedures. We are always eager to discuss any issues that may arise in the course of our patients’ care. Our goal is to provide personalized, top-notch dermatologic care, further the important doctor-patient relationship, and enhance each patient’s experience in our office.
