Recently we learned that Secure Horizons has dropped us from their plan. Effective September, 2014, we will no longer be able to see any patients with Secure Horizons insurance. The company has let us know that they are trying to control their costs and they want a smaller network of physicians. Our office has not been included. This decision suprised us.
We wanted to let you know that this decision did not come from us. And our office will continue to see patients with Medicare Advantage insurance plans run by other companies.
Dr. Faulkner will be off from July into late September for family leave. If you have primarily seen Dr. Faulkner in the past and feel that you need an appointment, please call. Either Dr. Weller or Dr. Gratigny will be happy to see you during this time.
Dr. Weller and Dr. Gratigny will both be out of the office the following dates:
Thursday, September 18
Friday, September 19
and Tuesday, September 23

Physicals and Co-pays
Many insurance companies do not require a co-pay for a physical examination. They provide full coverage for the usual things covered in a physical: discussion of past health history, immunizations, healthy habits, screening tests, and a full physical examination. But, if more topics are covered or if a procedure is performed, your insurance may be billed for more than just a physical. This may mean that you will be required to make a co-payment or pay a deductible amount, depending on your insurance coverage. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to talk to anyone in our office. Thank you.
