No. The healthcare you receive at Summit Medicine and Pediatrics is rendered outside of the contractual restrictions, obligations, and limitations of your health insurance plan, and each patient pays the doctor directly for services. However, when Dr. Mike orders labs and tests, prescribes medications, or refers you to a subspecialist, he will always do his best to ensure that such services are provided by facilities, pharmacies, and doctors who are still contracted with your insurance company, and each facility, pharmacy, and doctor will then submit a claim for reimbursement to your insurance company. This is also true for all patients who have Medicare and Medicare Advantage health insurance plans. Remember…Direct Access Medicine care is healthcare, not health insurance, and they are never mutually exclusive.
