Insurance Policy

Some of the procedures that Dr. Brown performs are covered by medical insurance. Dr. Brown accepts a variety of insurance plans as well as Medicare. Please see the list below of insurance carriers that we currently accept. Those procedures that are covered may still require a co-payment or an out-of-pocket deductible. The patient is ultimately responsible for the costs of surgery, regardless of insurance coverage. We will obtain approval when possible.

Our billing staff will work with you and your insurance company in order to obtain approval prior to your surgery. Remember that even if your insurance carrier covers your procedure, there may be a co-payment or deductible required prior to surgery. We appreciate your understanding that it can be a very difficult and time consuming process for us to obtain answers from insurance companies, and we will proceed as fast as possible assisting you with your claim.
