Insurance

Dr. Pelkey does NOT participate with ANY insurance networks.

ALL patients must pay at the time of the visit, we accept cash, checks and Mastercard or Visa. Patients are always given forms with all the required information for their insurance company. If their insurance allows them to choose “out of network” doctors there should be no problem with reimbursement – this is like any other doctor visit. If they plan to call their insurance company to see if the visits will be covered: They should NOT ask about seeing an OSTEOPATHIC doctor. Many insurance company employees do NOT know that DO’s are licensed exactly the same as MD’s and may give WRONG information. They SHOULD ASK if they may see an “out of network physician”. Some policies require a referral from their primary doctor for an out of network doctor.
