We cannot guarantee that, because you are in one of these networks, you are covered for certain procedures. You must check with your insurance company.

Additional Billing Information

You will receive separate bills (other than from WIMC) for any procedure performed by our physician at an ambulatory center or hospital. Any bill you receive from us will be for the physician’s services; the bill you receive from the center or hospital is for the use of their facility. Any questions pertaining to bills from other providers should be directed to that provider, and not to WIMC.

Please be aware that insurance companies now have preferred provider lists. This change means that if you need to see a doctor outside of our practice, your primary care physician will use this list to refer you to the specialist. This will benefit you by keeping your co-pay as low as possible. If you are referred outside of your network, it is possible you will have to pay a much higher co-pay for a specialist visit.

Medicare

Wake Internal Medicine Consultants (WIMC) participates with several HMO and PPO insurance plans. Please note, however, that WIMC is a non-participating provider of Medicare.

Medicare Advantage Plans

Effective January 2014, WIMC will see NC State Govt. retirees that are established patients, that opt for one of the Medicare Advantage plans.  For 2014, WIMC will
only accept Humana Medicare Advantage and United Medicare Advantage plans
offered to NC State Government Retirees.  We are making this exception on
a one year trial basis and will reevaluate our participation next year for 2015.
