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.

Very detailed and is able to provide answers when asked. Is willing to guide you through the process (in my case surgery). He is very confident and that alone provided a measure of peace for due to the type of surgery required. Dr. Ilyas is very knowledgeable and answered every question and concern. I wish there were more doctors like him. I didn't expect the quality of care I received because he is a surgeon, and surgeons tend to stay very busy. Dr. Ilyas is a not only an Exceptional and Outstanding Doctor but a great person too!
