your insurance coverage

Anagenesis Spine & Pain Medicine was founded by a physician with a devout passion: to deliver the most advanced and technologically up-to-date spine and back pain treatment in a stress-free environment.

Our commitment to exceptional care and its compassionate delivery to you require that we remain free from the restraints that in-network insurance policies can place on your doctor when deciding your treatment plan.

Insurance carriers refer to Anagenesis Spine & Joint Health as an out-of-network provider.

This does not mean that we do not accept your insurance, but rather, it means that we do not have a contract with your health insurance.

However, if you have an insurance policy with out-of-network benefits (i.e., a PPO policy), you have the additional benefit of visiting private physicians and private surgical facilities that are outside of your insurance carrier’s network.

A good word means a lot

Most Insurances Accepted

“We strongly believe in offering the most state-of-the-art treatments to our patients.”

Why go to an out-of-network provider?

We choose to stay out-of-network with insurance companies to maintain flexibility in optimizing your treatment. By remaining out-of-network, we can tailor our care plan to your needs, and not the needs of your insurance carrier.

In contrast, in-network medical practices are contractually obligated to adhere to the HMOs’ stringent rules regarding where, when, and by whom a procedure is authorized to be performed – sometimes right down to the specifics of how a particular procedure can be performed.

Insurance carriers are also slow to embrace new treatments and diagnostic tools, and we strongly believe in offering the most state-of-the-art back pain treatments to our patients.

We accept most major insurances with the exception of the following:

  • BlueCross
  • BlueCross BlueShield
  • 1199 SEIU
  • Medicaid
  • HIP
  • Oscar

Our staff will verify your insurance immediately.
