Payment Options: How to Pay for Your Medical Care

  • Fee for service: paid at time of visit; may be in form of cash, checks, or credit card.

  • Standard insurance: pay copay at time of visit; bill may be paid toward any deductible amount. Your insurance will be billed. Any account balance that is not paid by your insurance will be billed to you. We accept most insurance plans (please call the office to confirm), EXCEPT the following, which we do NOT accept:
    • Dual Eligible Medicare+Medicaid
    • Medicaid
    • State of Connecticut Charter Oak

  • Medicare: pay annual Medicare deductible at the start of each year and any coinsurance after deductible.

Subscriber plan

In ADDITION to the above plans, we offer several special plans that may allow you to choose an insurance plan with lower premiums and a higher deductible that may allow you to save money and see your primary care doctor more often. You must sign a commitment contract for a minimum of 6 months; there is a discount available if the contract is signed for 1 year and paid in full at start of the contract. The cost of these plans are NON-covered services (NOT paid by Medicare or private insurance); all of these plans have regular office visits billed to Medicare and private insurance as usual except as noted. ALL other fees, including labs, medications, vaccinations, and WebView electronic medical record access are the same except as noted.
