Insurance & Payments

Insurance

To ensure that your visit will proceed smoothly, it's helpful if you are fully aware of your health insurance coverage prior to your visit.  Please remember to bring a current insurance card and share it with our staff upon checking in.  We strongly encourage you to contact your insurance carrier to determine whether or not you need a referral for your visit to the urologist.

Our Business Office will file your insurance claim for you. All of our physicians are Participating Providers in the Medicare program, and they also participate in most of the major managed care plans in the metropolitan area. To find out if your plan is included, please feel free to contact our office.

If you are a member of a managed care plan, there are certain features common to these plans of which you should be aware.

  • You will usually be responsible for a co-payment due at the time of your visit.
     
  • Many plans require a referral from your primary care physician in order for your visit to a specialist to be covered. If you need a referral, please be sure to request if from your primary care physician before you arrive for your appointment.

Payment of Fees

We provide our patients with the best available care and facilities at a reasonable cost. If you have any questions about our charges, please do not hesitate to ask.

However, should larger fees, such as those for surgical procedures, impose a burden on your family, our Administrator and business office will assist you in making manageable arrangements. St. Louis Urological Surgeons Administrative Office: 314.434.6130
