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.
