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.

One thing that impressed me was that Dr. Ellis mentioned a finding in my x-rays that didn't pertain to the problem I was actually seeing him for or his area of care. I was aware of it before but I especially appreciated his concern that I understand the importance of it.

Dr. Ellis is fantastic. Highly recommend him. Very professional and insightful into my injury. Sent off for an MRI that was approved in 1 hour. Unbelievable. That tells me he did a pre-authorization in order to get me taken care of ASAP. Great Ortho doc!
