Over the last several years, Livonia Family Physicians has contributed a financial gift to the Livonia Family Physicians Scholarship Fund to the College of Health Professions at the University of Detroit Mercy. There is certain criteria the recipient must meet before the decision is made as to who qualifies and eventually is awarded the scholarship. The recipient of the 2013 scholarship wanted to share a bit of information regarding her receipt of this financial award:
My husband is an active duty Marine currently finishing up school to be an explosive ordinance technician. I have exposure to such a unique client base being a Marine wife that I have been making moves to take advantage of that -- I have been going through an intense selection process to work as a PA in the United States Navy. I would be working in a family practice on base caring for other wives, children and veterans - both active duty and retired. I have been shadowing a local Naval PA and the work is so rewarding. Please let Dr. Selznick know that I have used the scholarship to finance the last semester of grad school AND pay off half of a loan! I passed the PANCE and obtained my license in the State of Michigan. Please, thank him for me again - he has made the lives of this military couple a lot easier. I am blessed to have received this scholarship. ~Rachel

PREVENTIVE EXAM VS. OFFICE VISIT
We have had numerous requests from patients after their insurance has been billed and submitted to change their office visit codes to a preventative visit. Alot of people have well exams or preventative services available once a year as a covered service on their policy. Please, discuss with your provider at the time of service - definately not after your insurance has been processed. Our billing service cannot change a code after processing in order to make it a "covered" service. If you are in the office for a physical - let your provider know immediately as they enter your exam room. Let them know that you are in for a well exam and would like it billed as such. Become familiar with your insurance coverage before you come into the office. Not all lab tests are considered "routine" and cannot be billed associated with a well exam. If you are in the office for a problem focused visit, it will be billed that way as well. Please communicate with your provider so the billing is sent through correctly the first time and changes are not needed after the fact.
Livonia Family Physicians feels very strong in supporting our military and their families.
We are the largest office in southeast Michigan serving the active and retired patients with
TriCare Insurance. We will make special accomodations to our service men and women to
show them how much we appreciate their service to our community and our country.
Livonia Family Physicians made a monetary donation to help cover expenses to soldiers and their families upon their return from Afghanistan.
The Helping Hands:Monkey Helpers for the Disabled, Inc. program trains monkeys for the disabled. Our patients, the Webster's, have worked training monkeys for the past several years. Unfortunately, some of the monkeys are prone to develop diabetes and require insulin. To help defray the cost for their efforts with these wonderful animals, we would like to ask our patients if they are able to donate any unused or expired Lantus Insulin, syringes or Freestyle test strips. If you are able to provide any of these supplies, please call our office or drop the items off and we will forward to them.
