Patient Insurance Letter

Due to the recent governmental changes regarding healthcare reform in 2010, physicians all around the country are being put in a difficult position to practice effective care with the significant limitations and governmental intervention. Although HealthwoRx™ physicians are continuously committed to provide the best patient care possible, we want you to be aware of some of the more significant changes.

Physicians must now use different coding to charge Medicare and private insurance companies for giving opinions (medical consults) on your healthcare needs and providing a specific pre-operative clearance examination.  As we continue to voice our displeasure and concerns with these radical governmental changes, there will be changes in the way we code your visits in the upcoming year. Because many of the new government and private insurance mandates are not clear to healthcare providers across the country, there will be a lot of confusion in how claims will be paid.  Therefore, we expect discrepancies in the billing process.  If you receive a bill for services you believe are erroneous, please contact the Business Office at (954) 967-6550 so we may investigate the validity of the billing statement.

As we continue to strive to provide the best care we always have, we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
