Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept insurance?
We do not – and we are not on any insurer’s preferred provider list. Because we treat differently (both medically and personally) than the medical community (insurance companies) dictates, we do not “participate” in any insurance programs. We are considered “out of network” so look at your policy under “out of network” provisions to see what they may cover. Most likely you have a separate deductible, and the insurance company may pay a percentage of the portion that is actually covered. We will provide you with a receipt indicating procedures and diagnosis codes for these insurance purposes.
What about Medicare?
Patients who have Medicare will receive a 10% discount on office visits. Lab tests can be billed to Medicare so long as there is a valid diagnosis that requires the test. Patients must sign an agreement not to bill Medicare for services received at AIM, since we have “opted out” of Medicare.
Do you know of any doctors close to my home who are similar to your practice?
Dr. Biddle is on the board of a group of doctors called ACAM, which stands for American College for the Advancement of Medicine. You can access their website at www.acam.org.
