Your Colorectal Surgeon & the Afforable Care Act

Insurance.  Your Colon And Rectal Surgeon.  Where Do We Stand?

By now, almost everyone in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and indeed the entire United States, has been caught up in the vast and sweeping changes associated with Obamacare, also known as The Affordable Care Act (ACA). Everyone has heard the controversies swirling around this legislation.  Everyone has picked a side in the debate.

But, what about your doctor?  What about your specialist such as your colon and rectal surgeon (also known as a proctologist)?  The fact is that your physicians are also doing their best to understand the changes at a national level and at a local level; doing their best to understand how patients can best be treated in this unknown and uncertain environment.  Every doctor and every group has begun to address these issues in a unique fashion.

Los Angeles Colon and Rectal Surgical Associates.

At our offices, we have tried to “keep it simple’. We are members of most insurance plans, meaning that we are preferred providers of each insurance company’s plans.  The following is a list of plans to which we belong.  It is not an exhaustive list, but covers the major health plans in the United States:

  • Aetna
  • Anthem Blue Cross
  • Blue Shield
  • Cedars-Sinai Medical Associates.
  • Cigna
  • Great West
  • Health Net
  • Humana
  • Medicare
  • Motion Picture and Television Fund
  • Multiplan
  • TriWest

We are not members of Covered California.  One member in our group is a member of the “narrow networks” of individual insurance companies.
