Anderson Knee and Shoulder Center

Insurance Plans

Dr Anderson is contracted with most PPOs. She is not contracted with Blue Cross PPO and Blue Shield PPO but we are happy to see you as an out of network provider, as some of the visit is usually covered. We recommend that you check with your current insurance to verify that Dr Anderson is a participating provider. We are required to collect your copayment at the time of your visit. If we do not participate with your health plan, payment at the time of service will be expected. We are happy to bill your insurance carrier as a courtesy and assist with the paperwork.

If you belong to an HMO, you will also be required to present your referral at the time of your appointment or you may need to have your appointment rescheduled. Unfortunately our office cannot obtain this for you. Payment of your co-payment is required at the time of service.

Workers' Compensation/Industrial Injuries

An authorization from your Worker's Compensation carrier is needed before seeing you in the office. If you have been hurt on the job, be sure your employer has been notified and you have received permission to be seen in our office. If your treatment is denied as being non work-related, you are financially responsible for all charges incurred.

Third-Party Claims

If you are involved in a third party litigation situation, or have been involved in an automobile accident and there will be litigation, payment in full is expected at the time of your visit. We cannot bill for your care since these claims often take many months or years to resolve. The only exception is if the insurance company gives us a guarantee of payment (MedPay). If this situation applies to you, please contact our office in advance of your appointment.

Stem cells, PRP, and HA, oh my! We are not in Kansas anymore… Part 2
