Westwood Cardiology is a long-time participant in the Medicare program.
We submit all Medicare claims, apply payment to your account and coordinate
benefits with any secondary insurance, if applicable.
COMMERCIAL HEALTH INSURANCE
Westwood Cardiology participates in many commercial health insurance
plans. For an updated list of participating insurance companies, click
here. When we participate with an insurance company it means we accept
a co-pay, any co-insurance and the company's fee schedule as payment
in full for services rendered. We submit the insurance claim for you,
monitor the claim as it is processed and apply payments to your account
as they are received.
INSURANCE WITH "OUT-OF-NETWORK" BENEFITS
For insurance plans with which we do not participate, it is common that
out-of-network benefits apply. Please check with your carrier to determine
whether you are eligible for out-of-network benefits. If you are eligible,
Westwood Cardiology will request payment in full for services at the
time of the visit, usually for an office visit or consultation and routine
diagnostic testing, i.e., electrocardiogram (EKG) or chest x-ray. We
will submit the insurance claim for you and you will receive payment
directly from your plan. Other, more sophisticated diagnostic tests
are billed to you and a convenient payment plan will be arranged.
