Billing & Insurance
With the monumental changes in healthcare over the last several years, both patients and healthcare providers now carry a greater burden to understand and comply with the guidelines of insurance plans. Your insurance plan may have both in-network and out-of-network providers. If we are an out-of-network provider, you may seek medical care with our doctors, but you may become responsible for a larger share of your treatment costs. Some services, such as chemotherapy, are very costly, so it is very important that you know what your coverage allows prior to beginning your treatment.
We have a team of highly-skilled financial counselors to help explain your benefits. Please do not hesitate to call (717) 975-8954 with any and all questions.
At this time Hematology & Oncology Consultants of Pennsylvania, P.C. accepts assignment with most major carriers in the area including:
- Capital Blue Cross
- Coventry National Network
- Geisinger Health Plan
- Great West
- Highmark Blue Shield
- Keystone Health Plan Central
As a courtesy to our patients, our business office bills all primary and secondary insurances. In order to ensure reimbursement, we need your most up to date insurance information. Please be sure to notify us if you have any changes in coverage or insurance carriers.
Once you and your doctor have agreed upon a treatment plan, our business office will research your insurance benefits and discuss your out-of-pocket responsibility, if any, prior to the start of your treatment. We will follow through with all aspects of your care to ensure that you receive your full benefits. Please call our business office, (717) 975-8954, for any and all questions or concerns. Our friendly, highly-skilled staff can assist you in dealing with your insurance company so that you can focus your energies where they belong, on healing.
As participating providers with your insurance company we are contractually obligated to collect co-payments at the time services are rendered. We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit/debit cards for your convenience.
We understand that medical costs can become a financial burden. Please do not ignore any bills. Call our business office at (717) 975-8954 during regular business hours if you have a problem with a bill or with making payments. We will do everything possible to ease your financial worries so that you can concentrate on getting well.
