InsuranceWe accept assignment for covered services from patients having:

  • Medicare

  • Orthotics and padding
  • Deductibles

Note To Medicaid Patients:

Medicaid only covers Podiatric services when referred by your Primary Doctor and when the treatment sited in the written referral is for the “life and safety” of the patient. These are their rules, not ours !

Note To Blue Cross Blue Shield, Harvard Pilgrim and NHP Patients:

Please check your plan to see if you need a referral from your Primary Care Physician.

Please call the Tribal Health Program and let them know of your upcoming appointment so they can issue an authorization number.
