WILL MY INSURANCE COVER MY VISIT?
We are in-network and accept the above insurances, however we may not be in your exact plan within the insurance network. While we are in most of them, some plans have narrow networks for some products with a limited number of physicians. However, when your insurance processes the claims as in-network the carrier will pay based on your policy documents. You may be responsible for Deductibles, Copays, Coinsurances, or for items that may be excluded from coverage by your plan.
We also recommend calling your carrier and asking or visiting their website. You may give them Dr. Levin's NPI number to look up and see if your plan will treat your visit as in-network. His NPI is 1295722437.
If you are selecting Dr. Levin to be your primary doctor and have an insurance plans that requires you to select a Primary Care Physician (PCP) you MUST select Dr. Levin as PCP by calling your insurance prior to your appointment.
If you are visiting Dr. Levin for Nephrology care and have an insurance that requires Referrals from your PCP, you must have those before the visit or your insurance may deny coverage. Plans that may require Referrals are HMO plans, some plans from Aetna, Most plans from HIP (Emblem), some plans from Health First, Some plans from Blue Cross Blue Shield, Some Plans from Oxford, and Some Plans from United Healthcare. If you are unsure if you need a referral please contact your insurance company.
