Health Insurance Benefits

We encourage you to review your insurance coverage prior to your visit with Digestive Disease Associates. It is important for you to understand the extent of your health insurance coverage and the responsibilities you have as part of that coverage.

Referrals and Authorizations

Your insurance may be required to obtain a referral to be seen by one of our physicians. Prior to your visit to our office, please review your member handbook or contact your member services department to determine if a referral is required. Referrals must be in our office by the time that you are seen by a physician. Patients can either bring their referral or have their primary care physician fax the referral to our office.

Note: Most primary care physicians require at least 48 hours’ notice be given for them to prepare a referral.

Co-Payments/Co-insurance and Deductibles

Most insurance plans have co-pays associated with their coverage. Through our contract with your insurer, we are required to collect payment of deductibles and co-pays for services at the time services are rendered. For your convenience we accept cash, personal checks, American Express, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.

Digestive Disease Associates participates with the insurance plans listed below. Please check with your insurance plan prior to your visit to our office to confirm our participation with your plan.
