Your rights and protections against surprise medical bills

Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice. Baylor Scott & White Health does not manage the insurances accepted for this doctor.

Wicked Smart preventive cardiologist. There are lots of talented BSW Doctors running around doing stents and bypasses, but few looking for root causes and preventive therapy. Why not visit Dr. Kulkarni in your 40s, assess your cardiovascular health, and take action before all the damage is done? I ended up with stupid high LP(a) which is hereditary and drove significant early cardiovascular issues. She was the first doctor I have seen in the last 50 years who even understood the grave genetic impact of LP(a) and the importance of mitigating genetics.

She is cheerful, positive, up to date, sensitive. Just a really nice person who knows her medicine well. She was concerned about about me, knowing I was really sick from my AI disorder & pending total colectomy w/ perm ileostomy. She was just glad to see me & glad how well I was doing w the "cure." I always learn from her. That's important. She doesn't push meds. She explains things at may education level. Thx. Pw
