If you belong to a "High Value Network" (HVN) you are responsible to know the restrictions of your plan, including restricted providers/groups.
To protect you against healthcare identity theft and to ensure we have your most current insurance information, we scan your photo ID and insurance card(s) at every visit.
If you do not have health insurance or are underinsured, please review our Financial Assistant policy.
