Insurance

We pride ourselves on helping our patients. Therefore, from your new patient visit, you will meet with our New Patient Clerk specialist who will call your insurance company, verify coverage and get an outline of the benefits you have. The New Patient Clerk will meet with you and explain what information she received from the insurance company. We also have a full billing staff to bill your insurance carrier directly. We will also proceed with collecting the appropriate balance from the insurance company.

We do the insurance work for you whenever possible. If you have any questions regarding your insurance coverage with Health First don’t hesitate to contact our insurance department at 724-628-6677, ext. 207 or use our contact form.

Fine print:

As the patient, you are responsible to know and understand your insurance policy. The contract for health insurance coverage is between you the patient and your insurance company. As well, it is the patients responsibility to pay any co-insurance, deductibles, co-payments and any non-covered items as required by your health insurance carrier contract.
