Physician Discounts

For a sick doctor visit make sure to stay in-network.  Show your medical card, and ask that they send the claim through your insurance for all services or tests and bill you the discounted rates.  If you are a new patient, the doctor may ask for payment up front, and you will be reimbursed after the claim is submitted to your insurance.
