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.

He is a caring and considerate physician. He asks questions and really tries to understand his patient's needs on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and home life. And he is very friendly and kind. I'm so glad he is coming to the Cameron clinic.

I was very pleased with my appointment with Dr. Beckendorf. He has been following my nodule on my lung for quite some time. He has always spent quality time with me. He has been Instrumental In getting my Pert Scan which definitely confirmed that I had Cancer. I have received three Radiation Treatments so far and he wants to see me for a follow up In four months to see my progress. He Is the best.

Dr. Beckendorf has been my pulmonary physician for approximately 10 years. He has always gone way above and beyond looking at the whole picture, not just pulmonary. He has explained everything in detail, included me and asked for my input in all medical decisions and interfaces with my other physicians. I could not ask for better care.
