If you have a HMO Insurance (HealthPlus or HealthPlus Medicaid) it is your responsibility to obtain a referral from your primary care physician prior to your appointment. Your primary physician will need to know the date and time of your appointment and why you have been referred to see us. As directed by your insurance company if your referral is not received before your appointment you will be responsible for the bill. If you are unsure how to obtain this referral please call your referring physician or our office for help.
If you have an HMO, PPO, or Private type of insurance you must inform the nurse of the Lab you are required to use if you have an amniocentesis. It is our practice to use Michigan State University Laboratory unless we are informed otherwise.
Your insurance company will be billed for services rendered. Any unpaid balance will then be billed to you and will be your responsibility.
If you need procedure or diagnostic codes to determine what insurance coverage you have, please feel free to call our office at (989) 755-4515.
