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. McFarland is a good match for me. He is aggressive and intuitive, and very personable. He generously explained things to me, even cleared up some mysteries, and had suggestions about my future care. His level of concern also matches my own level of concern. It is wonderful, after so many years of fighting heart disease, to meet up with a real disease fighter. He provides good advice, thorough explanations, and simple but real hope to this battle weary patient. After a conga-line of interns, I appreciate a veteran Cardiologist who has such a deep background of experience and shares it. My wife came along, as I was not feeling well, (around 8.5 Hemoglobin count) and was not confident that I could repeat a summation of his visit very well. She was impressed, and when asked for her reaction, she offered, "He is straight up," which if you knew our history with health care with our parents, would be her highest complement. His straightforward, problem-solving style is much admired and appreciated.
