Regrettably, we do not participate with Medicare or any private insurance companies as it would not be financially feasible to provide the level of care that we do if we did.
We offer two services as described on the 'About The Practice' page: the initial consultation and follow-up visits.
The fee for the initial comprehensive evaluation is $1,800. Follow-up visits with Dr. Schor are $350 and those with Nurse Practitioners Andrea Kohn or Jessica Abrams are $300.
We do not charge for communication in-between visits, calling in prescriptions, etc., However. for lengthy/extensive discussions, meetings, or document preparation we do charge a pro-rated fee of $350/hour.
Fees for legal services are billed at $500 per hour and are obtained as per a retainer agreement through the representing attorney.
The invoice for the initial evaluation is typically sent within 30 days of the evaluation. Follow up visit invoices are sent out quarterly. Invoices are sent via email; we can mail them via post if needed. Personal check is the preferred form of payment.
We have "Opted Out" of Medicare, which means Medicare will not reimburse for our services; this means that they will not reimburse you for our visits but they will still cover any tests or medications we order the same as they would if ordered by clinicians that do participate in Medicare.
Should you wish to seek reimbursement through secondary insurance we will provide the required forms. Before our first session we recommend that you contact the patient's secondary insurance company to inquire specifically about their reimbursement for services provided by "out-of-network provider who has opted-out of Medicare." You will need the insurance billing codes (CPT codes) for the various services. For the initial consultation, we use the CPT codes 99345 + 99354 and 99214 + 90836 or 90833 for follow-up visits. We have found that these codes typically offer the best chance for some reimbursement.
Should you have any questions regarding this policy, please do not hesitate to contact us.
