Accepted Insurance

(Last update: October 30th, 2023)

We will file claims for all your office visits and in-office procedures with us on your behalf, and send you a monthly statement to keep you informed.

If you do not have insurance, someone from our billing department will work with you to set up a payment schedule and give you information about organizations that offer assistance. Please let your physician know of your situation so that he or she might be able to obtain help with the cost of the medications needed to treat you.

Our billing department will file your insurance claims. If your insurance plan requires a referral, you will be responsible for obtaining one before we can provide your medical services.

As participating providers, we are contractually obligated to collect co-pays at the time of service. At times there may be treatment opportunities available that are not covered by your insurance provider.

It is the patient’s responsibility to contact their insurance company to determine if Arthritis Consultants of Tidewater is a participating provider with your specific plan. Below is a list of our accepted insurance plans at this time. This list can change, so please confirm prior to scheduling.
