No Reimbursement By Medicare or Other Government Insurance
Our doctors love taking care of our older patients, but we do not participate in Medicare because the reimbursements are far too small to justify the amount of time we spend with our older patients. Additionally, bureaucratic hassles with Medicare are onerous and overwhelming, as you’re probably aware.
Patients of Medicare age are welcome to join CFM, but because our doctors have “opted-out” of Medicare and other government health programs, federal law requires that patients over age 65 must sign a “Private Contract” with our office agreeing not to submit claims to Medicare for any medical services they receive from us.
Of course, your government coverage remains fully in effect for any medical expenses you may incur from other doctors or medical facilities.
