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.

Dr. Collins was caring and interested in how I was doing. We talked about my prescription and that I could take less to see how I would handle that amount.

Was referred to Dr Collins through my network, he was not my first choice because of distance. I have diabetes and possible diabetic neuropathy: he is a neurologist, but not specializing in diabetic neurology. Hopefully, change in meds and testing will provide relief for my condition. Dr Collins is a skilled physician, it was a good first appointment.

Not sure what Jess Collins limits are but, I'm sure he's knowledgeable on all aspects with my neuropathy. Not sure what else he can do for me about my issue. It could be my diet but not sure, hopefully we'll find out before I lose function of my legs.
