What insurance does Dr. Nassar MD take?
An internist is a doctor of internal medicine who specializes in treating disorders and diseases of the kidneys, lungs, heart, and other organs. They provide care to patients living with chronic or complex diseases and conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and cancer. Internists often work in partnership with other specialists to provide the best possible care for their patients. Most internists are board-certified specialists in their field, which requires completion of a four-year medical school program and the completion of a four-year residency program. In the US, internists can be found in both community hospitals and large medical centers.
Doctors are not required to accept health insurance plans and many choose not to work with particular insurers or government payers that offer lower reimbursements to doctors. Instead, they may move to cash-only medical practices or develop their own payment plan. A major reason for this is the denial of claims by insurance companies, which makes it harder for doctors to accept patients in their plans by lowering reimbursements. Consequently, lots of doctors are dropping plans.
Physicians negotiate the price of treatment with health insurers and the health insurance company sets the rates that it will pay the doctor. Additionally, some insurance companies may include quality metrics that must be met for the doctors to receive the full reimbursement. While insurers set the rates, the physician has the final say in whether or not they agree to the terms established.
There are several ways to find an internist who is accepting insurance and is often known as in-network. The first thing you should do is call the provider’s office and ask them if they take your specific insurance plan; make sure you have your insurance card on hand when doing so. Additionally, you can also check on your insurance company’s website or the internist’s website.
It is important to note that even if a provider takes one kind of plan offered by a given health insurance company, it does not mean that they take all plans offered by that company. That is why you will want to specifically ask about your exact plan name if you are calling an internal medicine practice or checking that doctor’s website.
