Insurance Accepted: Medicare
While we are regularly evaluating insurance plans, it is often more expensive for your patients to receive audiologic care in network than out of network. The Audiology METHOD subscribes to the "itemized or unbundled" hearing healthcare model. Itemizing allows your patients to see the actual cost of their audiologic services separate from any devices they may need, gives them more choice, and lowers the entry price to improving their communication since they are only paying for what they need. We are happy to bill your patient’s insurance company out of network for them. Please call if you have further questions regarding our insurance policy.
How to refer?
CMS requires a signed medical order from a physician for each patient reading “Evaluate and Treat”
When should you refer to an audiologist?
