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.
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.
