Cost is always a concern for the consumer and for the provider. Putting a price tag on improving your health and well being is difficult to do. Here is some information that I think will be helpful to know as a medical consumer. Medical care and visit charges are based on several factors: how much time is spent with a patient, how many problems are being addressed, how complex the visit is. These factors are assigned a code and each code has a value. Insurances drive the costs for these services and also how the provider is reimbursed for these services. As a provider, we are held responsible to code our charts honestly and ethically.
Insured and non-insured patients are welcome, regardless of the level of insurance coverage. Insured patients that are out of network with Be Well Family Medicine are also welcome. For each group, a conversation will need to take place about how you will pay for your visit. Unfortunately, it is a necessary evil. However, it does allow for this wonderful service to continue.
Also, an important fact to know is insurance does not cover all procedures or services. We will work together to see what is covered and how we can utilize that information to give you the best care possible. You will always be given options and in the very end you will choose what you would like to do. Our passion is to empower you to take charge of your health and medical care by giving you information to support your decisions.

* We accept a credit card or check card (even a HSA card): Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover. We are more than willing to provide a receipt for you to either submit for reimbursement, claim towards your insurance deductible, or use a health savings account. If you have out-of-network benefits we could send a claim that way if so desired. If there is an insurance that you would like for us to pursue, then please submit a request on the contact page. While you are there, give us some feedback on your experience. 🙂
