Insurance and Payments 

Effective July 1, 2020 we unfortunately will no longer be accepting any new patients for Family Medicine or primary care assignments.  Please contact your insurer to find accepting providers.  We will continue to see new patients for Sports Medicine care only.

We participate with most major PPO and EPO insurance plans.

We are currently accepting new Medicare, Exclusive Care and PPO insured patients, as well as private pay patients.

If you are an HMO insured patient through Desert Oasis Healthcare (DOHC), at this time we are only accepting new assignments with Medicare/Senior plans or Covered California plans.  Please contact Desert Oasis Health Care to be assigned to our office prior to scheduling your appointment. 

We are not able to accept the following insurance plans: MediCal, IEHP, EPMG or Kaiser Permanente health plan insurances.

IEHP Direct plan members may request an authorization to be seen for Sports Medicine only at this time.

It is important to make sure that we have your correct insurance plan information.  In order to use your insurance benefits, without extra out-of pocket expense, it is your responsibility to notify us of any changes in your plan.  Please present your insurance card at the time of each check-in for your appointment.
