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.
Wake Internal Medicine Consultants (WIMC) participates with several HMO and PPO insurance plans. Please note, however, that WIMC is a non-participating provider and that we do not participate with any Medicare Advantage plans.
Medicare Advantage Plans
A Medicare Advantage plan is Medicare coverage through a private health insurance provider. These plans have policy restrictions that differ from traditional Medicare coverage, and because of these unique policies, Wake Internal Medicine has decided not to contract with any of these plans. This means we are unable to provide any services to those with a Medicare Advantage plan
