Insurance Options for Your Heart Treatment
Heart disease requires lifelong treatment and monitoring by your cardiologist. For many patients, the cost of these treatments prevents them from seeking out the care they need early on. At Beverly Hills Cardiology, we work with insurance companies to help our patients obtain the vital heart treatments they need. We accept most insurance plans and work with most major insurance companies, including:
To help avoid high out-of-pocket expenses, it is important to understand your health insurance coverage. Before certain procedures and surgeries can be performed, many insurance companies require prior authorization. In some cases, providers will restrict the facilities that can provide these services. Our staff will work with your insurance plan to ensure that you have the coverage you need for the treatments we recommend. Having a personal understanding of your policy’s coverage can further help you avoid financial complications during treatment.
Heart treatments often involve complicated medical procedures, tests and follow-ups. Ensuring that you maintain adequate medical coverage is crucial. Gaps in coverage can make it difficult to regain coverage and can lead to high out-of-pocket expenses. Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies can no longer deny coverage because of pre-existing conditions. This gives heart patients many options when it comes to health insurance coverage.
If you are unable to obtain appropriate coverage through your employer, you may be able to obtain an affordable individual health insurance plan to cover the cost of your treatment. Patients who are uninsured will be responsible for treatment costs.
