Insurance and Billing

Not all physicians participate in all plans. At NYGA it is our mission to assist patients in aspects of their care including insurance and payment related matters. All insurance coverage is verified in advance and all claims to insurance carriers in which individual doctors participate will be submitted for assignment. Should patients be required to pay directly for services we will as a courtesy provide all the necessary paperwork to submit a claim for reimbursement.

Insurance coverage for lab work, pathology and anesthesiology services varies. Patients are responsible for any out-of-pocket expense as a result of co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance etc.
