About Our Billing
Your visit to the Prostate Cancer Prevention Clinic uses your annual preventative medicineallowance through your insurance provider.
However, Medicare does not cover preventative medicine visits and Medicare patients will be asked to pay for this visit out of pocket.
For all other commercial insurers, this visit will satisfy your annual preventative visit (also known and your yearly physical). However, your health plan provides coverage only for services that are defined as covered services within the benefit guidelines of your certificate of coverage. Your health plan may not cover this preventative medicine visit. In the case that your health plan denies coverage for this preventative medicine visit, you will be asked to pay for this visit.
