Insurance and Financial Information
Many managed-care health insurance plans require patients to obtain a referral before visiting a specialist. Other plans require no referrals. Each plan is different.
Educate yourself about YOUR health insurance plan. Be sure to understand the terms of your coverage and the necessity - or lack thereof - of obtaining referrals and what services are or are not allowed under your plan.
Your insurance carrier has entered into contracts with certain diagnostic centers for services. This may limit your options as to what lab or imaging center you can use. It is important for you to know who participates with your plan.
While we are happy to assist you with your insurance, we cannot accept responsibility for knowing all of the details of your coverage. Please contact the customer relations department of your carrier to learn more about the details of your health insurance plan. The telephone number is typically listed on your insurance card. Insurance company representatives are far better prepared than our administrative staff to answer questions regarding your health plan coverage.
If you have an insurance that requires a referral, it may be beneficial to request one as soon as you have scheduled your appointment with Central Maryland Urology. Some primary care offices may take up to two weeks to process your request. If you do not have a referral, there is the possibility that you will not be seen by a physician.
Insurance policy dictates that co-pays be collected at the time of visit. Please check your policy for your co-pay amount and be prepared to pay at the time of service. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, VISA® and MasterCard®.
