It is very important for you to bring your current insurance card with
you on each visit to our office. Be sure to inform us if there has been
any change in your coverage or in your address. As changes may occur in
the plans that we accept, please verify our acceptance at the time you
make an appointment.
Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic will make every effort to verify your coverage
prior to your appointment. We cannot, however, guarantee coverage of services
by your insurance company. Speak with a member of our helpful and friendly
support staff if you have any questions regarding insurance.
Patients with Private Health Insurance
For those patients who have health insurance with which we do not participate,
it means that you will be seeing the health care provider “out of
network.” You may determine what your insurance company will cover
by contacting them in advance of your visit. Seeing a physician “out
of network” may mean you have a higher annual deductible and/or
co-insurance. Regardless of what your insurance covers, you are responsible
for paying your bill. Should you have any questions please contact us
at (310) 665-7200.
If you are a self-pay patient, meaning a patient without health insurance,
or who has international insurance or third party liability insurance,
you will be required to pay for services at the time of the visit. If
you need an estimate, please contact our financial counselor at (310)
665-7200. For your convenience, we accept cash, check, American Express,
MasterCard, Visa, and Discover. We offer a prompt pay discount of 40%
when services are paid at the time of service.
Benefits & Eligibility
To determine your insurance benefits and eligibility, please contact your
insurance carrier directly. Note that you are ultimately responsible for
payment of all services that are not covered by your insurance plan. If
your insurance requires a referral or authorization, please obtain the
required referral or authorization prior to your appointment and present
this information to us when scheduling your visit.
