Health care insurance is intended to cover some, but
not all, of the cost of your treatment. Most plans include
coinsurance, a deductible and other expenses which must
be paid by the patient.
If you have insurance, please bring your plan information
with you to your first visit. We will work with you
to assure that you receive the maximum benefits to which
you are entitled.
Occasionally, it is necessary for Dr. Longobardi to
order special diagnostic tests which are not available
in the office. These may include special x-rays, scans
or diagnostic lab tests. The institutions that perform
the tests or the doctor who interprets the tests may
send you a bill. If you undergo a surgical procedure
which necessitates an assistant, you may receive a bill
from the assistant surgeon. If you have difficulty with
these bills, please call our office.
