Insurance Policy

Insurance Policy:

Dr. Pashman accepts most PPO insurance,  and will submit the bills on the patient’s behalf.  However; he is only a provider for BLUE CROSS PPO. What that means is that your out of pocket portion may be a little higher.

DR PASHMAN IS NOT A CONTRACTED PROVIDER FOR ANY OTHER INSURANCE, HOWEVER HE WILL SEE ALL INSURED PATIENTS AND HIS BILLING OFFICE WILL MAKE INDIVIDUAL ARRANGEMENTS WITH YOU. OUR BILLING OFFICE CAN BE REACHED AT (310) 335-6855

Dr. Pashman opted out of Medicare in 2005– he does not bill Medicare nor can the patient bill Medicare for his services. All patients’ with Medicare are required to pay at the time of their appointment, and must sign an “Opt-Out Acknowledgement Form”.  If the patient requires surgery, Cedars Sinai Medical Center will bill Medicare for the hospital fees. Dr. Pashman’s billing company will make arrangements with the patient for cash payment prior to surgery.

Patients who have Blue Shield insurance will be required to pay at the time of service.  We will submit billing to Blue Shield on your behalf, and they will send payment directly to the patient.
