Insurance

We accept most insurance carriers. Please have your card with you at the time of your visit. If we file your claim, you are responsible for only the co-pay at the time of visit. If we are not a provider for your insurance, if you are not insured or we do not file with your insurance company, you may be responsible for the entire charge at the time of service.

Advocare participates with most major insurance plans. As participation varies by region, specialty, and physician, we recommend that you contact either our office or your insurance company representative to verify that your insurance plan is accepted.



Considering visiting any Advocare practice and have AETNA insurance?

EFFECTIVE  APRIL 1, 2018

We cannot see  NEW patients who have Aetna insurance if the patient has not already been seen in our office, or not been in communication with an Advocare office prior to April 1, 2018, or does not already have a family member who has had care in either our office or any other Advocare office.  We will continue to see patients who already visit our office, or other Advocare offices, who have Aetna insurance.

As the cost of medical care continues to rise and services covered by our health care insurance plans decrease, Advocare offices are partnering with insurance plans to change this trend. Together we are investing in services that include: 24/7 access to our offices, after hours urgent care centers, care coordination teams to monitor patients with chronic conditions, discharge planning teams to contact patients within a few days of discharge from a hospital of rehab facility, and office care directors to assist our patients in getting all the services they need. 

These services are provided through a unique relationship we have developed with most of the insurance plans. Unfortunately, Aetna is not one of them. We truly feel that this puts our Aetna patients at a considerable disadvantage and regretfully our Advocare offices have decided to not accept any new Aetna patients. This is not a decision that Advocare chose lightly and we would like your help. 

If you or your company’s benefits coordinator could reach out to Aetna and encourage them to partner with Advocare, that may encourage them to do so and we will be able once again provide high quality medical care to all Aetna patients.
