What is an BlueCare PPO ? BlueCare PPO

Bluecare PPO plans give you flexibility. You don’t need a primary care physician. You can go to any health care professional you want without a referral—inside or outside of your network.

Staying inside your network means smaller copays and full coverage. If you choose to go outside your network, you’ll have higher out-of-pocket costs, and not all services may be covered.

What’s the difference between in network and out of network?

When a doctor, hospital or other provider accepts your health insurance plan we say they’re in network. We also call them participating providers.

When you go to a doctor or provider who doesn’t take your plan, we say they’re out of network.

The two main differences between them are cost and whether your plan helps pay for care you get from out-of-network providers.

What is In-network savings?

When a provider joins our network, they agree to accept our approved amount for their services.

On your claims and explanation of benefits statements, you’ll see these savings listed as a discount.

Doctors or hospitals who aren’t in our network don’t accept our approved amount. You’ll be responsible for paying the difference between the provider’s full charge and your plan’s approved amount. That’s called balance billing.

How we can help you!

Yes, we can help you with your BlueCare PPO. Were glad to help you with all your foot care needs.

A visit to a podiatrist is a benefit covered by most insurance plans. However, there can be restrictions due to changes in recent health care coverages.

To avoid any additional cost to the patient, Podiatry Group of Georgia will work with your insurance company to get your services covered. Sometimes this requires our office to send in a letter of medical necessity which will state the reasoning behind the recommended treatment and include the patient’s history and diagnosis.

As a courtesy to our patients, we will contact your insurance company prior to your visit to verify that services are covered and that no referrals are required. This allows us to provide you with the best care while making sure you are aware of your insurance benefits for any treatments or services recommended for your specific condition before they are performed.

If you are having any foot pain, or overall concerns with your feet and want to schedule an appointment, please contact our office at (404) 806-3731. We will be able to help to you with any of your insurance concerns. Your insurance company will also be able to review your plan with you prior to your visit.
