Dr. Gindi is not a participating provider with HMO’s or PPO’s. However, most PPO’s and HMO POS plans will reimburse the insured for a percentage of the medical charges. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company to determine the amount your insurance plan will reimburse you for services rendered by a non-participating provider.
As a courtesy we will bill your primary insurance carrier for you. Please provide us with your current medical insurance information and a copy of your effective insurance card. Reimbursement from your insurance company will be payable to you and mailed directly to you. We will do everything possible to make sure your insurance plan optimally reimburses you for services rendered.
Dr. Gindi is no longer a Medicare provider. Patients age 65 or older must sign a contract stating they understand Dr. Gindi has opted out of Medicare therefore Medicare cannot be billed for services rendered. All patient charges will be the responsibility of the patient.
We are requesting a minimum of 24 hour cancellation notice. There will be a charge of $75 for missed appointments and $150 for missed physical examinations and missed treadmill stress tests without 24 hours prior notification.
