Does Insurance Cover My Visit To The Foot Doctor?
This is a very common question from my new patients.
A visit to a podiatrist is a benefit covered by most insurance plans. However, there can be restrictions due to changes in recent health care coverages.
To avoid any additional cost to the patient, Lexington Podiatry will work with your insurance company in an attempt to get your services covered. Sometimes this requires our office to send in a letter of medical necessity which will state the reasoning behind the recommended treatment and include the patient’s history and diagnosis.
As a courtesy to our patients, we will contact your insurance company prior to your visit to verify that services are covered and that no referrals are required. This allows us to provide you with the best care while making sure you are aware of your insurance benefits for any treatments or services recommended for your specific condition before they are performed.
If you are having any foot pain, or overall concerns with your feet and want to schedule an appointment, please contact our office at (859)264-1141. We will be able to help to you with any of your insurance concerns. Your insurance company will also be able to review your plan with you prior to your visit.
