Parathyroid Fees and Medical Insurance
Parathyroid Surgery Fees and Insurance
WE ACCEPT AND WILL WORK WITH ALL MAJOR UNITED STATES INSURANCE PLANS
REMOTE CONSULTATION AND CHART PREPARATION FEE: $400 (This fee is not covered by insurance and is the complete responsibility of the patient). We charge a one-time fee to the patient of $400 paid in advance for chart preparation and consultation. This involves the following steps: 1) Obtaining from the patient, endocrinologist and private medical doctor all pertinent laboratory and imaging tests. 2) Review of previous medical records by a panel of experts on diagnosis of primary hyperparathyroidism. 3) Entry of data into our specialized electronic medical record and parathyroid database. 4) Phone consultation with patient to review findings and to determine if you have parathyroid disease, how significant the hyperparathyroidism is and if you are a candidate for parathyroid surgery. 5) If you are a surgical candidate, arrangements will be made for you to travel to the New York Center for Advanced Parathyroid Surgery.
LOCAL PATIENTS: Chart preparation fee is waived for local patients. Patients can contact the office and schedule an appointment with our doctor to review and/or order labs and diagnositic imaging. Patients will be responsible for co-pays and/or any insurance deductibles at the time of visit.
SURGERY FEE: We will obtain approval for surgery and arrange payment with your insurance company if you have United States Insurance. This covers surgeon, anesthesia, anesthesiologist, x-ray, hospital, laboratory, operating room, operating room team, and recovery room.
