Costs and Insurance
As a world-renowned endometriosis specialist and pioneer of minimally invasive surgical treatment for complex gynecological issues, Dr. Farr Nezhat takes pride in his ability to provide patients with the best care possible. To continue helping women from across the globe and treat complex gynecological issues, the Nezhat Surgery for Gynecology / Oncology prioritizes cost and insurance that allow the flexibility to create world-class treatment plans tailored to each patient’s needs.
Our insurance coverage policy
At the Nezhat Surgery for Gynecology / Oncology, our top priority is to provide patients with the best care possible. After careful consideration, we have determined that the best way to do this is by remaining out-of-network for all insurance companies with the exception of Medicare. This allows Dr. Farr Nezhat to diagnose patients based on their specific need, rather than an inflexible fee schedule attached to an insurance provider’s ‘usual and customary’ rates.
This leads to a more comprehensive treatment plan, though it does mean that patients are financially responsible for all office visits and surgeries at our practice. Our staff is more than happy to help you work through payment and out-of-network benefits – as a courtesy, we will file a claim to your insurance company if out-of-network benefits exist. Prior to scheduling surgery, it is important that you take a look at your insurance policy to understand your coverage.
How much does treatment cost?
The charge for your treatment varies based on the severity of your diagnosis. Additionally, your out-of-network coverage may also contribute to the total cost. If you wish to discuss your situation in greater detail, please don’t hesitate to contact our office directly.
How do you work with my insurance?
If you provide us with the required insurance information, one of our new patient coordinators will gladly go over your benefits and coverage over the phone. Your insurance carrier will also be able to help you prepare this information.
Why do you choose to remain an out-of-network provider?
The primary reason why we have opted to remain out-of-network is our longstanding commitment to quality of care. As mentioned above, in-network coverage means that care can be dictated by the insurance provider’s ‘usual and customary’ rates. These inflexible fee schedules make it difficult to create individualized treatment plans. At the Nezhat Surgery for Gynecology / Oncology, we attract patients with complex gynecological issues who are looking for Dr. Farr Nezhat’s world-class surgical expertise. By remaining out-of-network, our practice can provide every patient with the customized world-class treatment they deserve. The benefits of this approach show up in the results – Dr. Farr Nezhat’s world-class surgical expertise helps hundreds of patients each year.
