What Information is Most Important to the Doctor during your Visit?
While many patients want to discuss in great detail the exact event which may have caused their injury, the most important information your health care team needs involves your symptoms (such as where you have pain, weakness, numbness, etc.) and what limitations these symptoms place on your everyday activities. Please take the time to write down this information so you can share it with us. We encourage you to write down all of your other concerns as well so you will not forget to ask any important questions.
We accept most commercial insurances, as well as Medicare, Medicaid, Texas and federal worker’s compensation. You will be required to have your insurance card and co-pay available at the time of your visit. We will assist you with the billing of your primary insurance. Letters of protection are not accepted.
If your insurance stipulates that you must have a referral to see us, be sure that your doctor has sent us the necessary information. We are not able to see you without this referral. Also, please review your medical insurance coverage regarding your benefits, covered services, any exclusion, limitations, deductibles or copayments, and the rules you need to follow as stated in your Evidence of Coverage.
You will be required to pay your co-payments at the time of your appointment.
If surgery is indicated upon initial evaluation, all FMLA and disability forms must be presented to our office in a timely fashion. Please allow 7 to 10 working days for form completion. There will be a $40.00 charge per form for our office to process FMLA and disability forms.
It is your responsibility to ensure whether a service is covered on your insurance plan. You may need to contact your insurance company before making the appointment to determine this.
Dr. Todd performs surgery at the following hospitals:
- USMD Arlington
