These are insurances our practice has been credentialed with currently accepts. If your insurance is through one of these providers listed below this means we will file the claim on your behalf, and perhaps collect a co-pay on visit.
New Brain Frontier is currently undergoing credentialing with private health insurance providers, and will be updated on the above list as we are accredited.
If your insurance is not listed above, New Brain Frontier charges a Fee for Services, and does not file or collect on insurance claims on behalf of the patient at this time. Insurance claims can be filed by the patient. (Health insurances might require different deductible thresholds and co-pay requirements.) Read below for more information about private insurance.
We currently do not take Medicaid at this time, and do not expect to in the foreseeable future. However you can still self-pay.
Contrary to belief, there is only about a ~50% collection rate on insurance claims. Often insurance can deny the claim, or make it difficult to collect. I suspect this is one reason that insurance costs have gone up; medical professionals have to raise prices to have to offset these lack of collections. We shift this risk of collection to the patient and their insurance provider.
We suspect if we did accept insurance our pricing would not significantly change, as we would have to take in co-pays or deductibles from the patient, that would not be significantly different from our current pricing. More working hours or administration costs for collections would be offset cost savings for the patient; we would have to hire a specialist for collections. In effect we would have to double our prices because, again, collections are around 50%.
Instead we would rather have transparent pricing, listed above, and pass these savings to you. If you have insurance, you can still to collect from your insurance provider, so in effect this is a cheaper, more transparent option for all patients, not just those with insurance.
If an appointment must be cancelled, the clinic must be given 48 hours notice (to reschedule other patients). If an appointment is missed, or not given the proper 48 hour notification, then we reserve the right charge the card on file $75.
