Insurance Coverage & Payment Options

San Francisco Gastroenterology is contracted with nearly all major medical insurance carriers. We are also a Medicare provider. Below is a small sampling of same of the insurance providers we accept:

  • Anthem Blue Cross
  • Blue Shield
  • Health Net
  • United Health Care
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Great West

While our office can offer you some general guidance regarding insurance coverage, it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure that any tests, procedures, medication and professional referrals are covered by your insurance plan. Depending on your coverage, you may also be responsible for co-insurance or a co-pay. As a service to our patients, if a procedure is recommended, we will verify patient insurance coverage and benefits, and make every effort to communicate this information to you before the procedure date. However, we strongly advise that you check with your insurance carrier to avoid any unforeseen financial obligations.
Request an Appointment

Please remember that some insurance companies require a referral or prior authorization from your primary care provider. Unfortunately, we cannot see you without a valid referral, so please check with your insurance provider to see if a referral is required. As a rule, patients with Medicare and a PPO insurance plan do not need a referral. Patients with an HMO insurance plan typically do require a referral.

All co-payments are due at the time of your visit. We will ask you to verify your current address and insurance information at the time of each visit.

We will submit all charges to your insurance company. After payment is received you will receive a statement of your account showing the amount due, per your insurance company.

If you need to make arrangements to pay off the balance, we will be happy to assist you with a payment plan. If you are unable to make a scheduled payment, please call us so that you will not receive a collection letter.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.
