Heart Health Insurance and Fees


 

Insurance Information

 
Patients contemplating care at SHAPE Medical Center should know that we not contracted with insurance companies or Medicare. However, many of the structural and laboratory tests may be covered by health insurance such as Medicare and Tricare. Please bring a copy of your insurance card for this reason. Reimbursement depends on the individual’s plan. Each situation is considered unique and is handled on a case-by-case basis. Our office recommends that you contact your insurance carrier to see what your out-of-network benefits are. We request payment at the time of service.
 
We are considered out-of-network for all insurance, however, we can supply you with a bill that you can submit to your insurance for possible partial reimbursement. You may download the Universal Claim Form. and submit this to your insurance company, along with the bill and a copy of your insurance card.
