How will I know if a new doctor takes my insurance?
The best way to find out if a doctor takes your insurance is to check with the doctor’s office staff. Remember, most insurers offer a variety of plan options. You have to be certain the doctor participates in your particular plan. Alternatively, use your health plan print or on-line Provider Directory to be certain your doctor is “in network.”
How can I determine if a doctor is part of a group medical practice?
Today, most doctors practice in groups, either large or small. In fact, as of December 2010, more doctors were employed by hospitals than were in private practice.
