Boulder Valley Foot and Ankle Clinic accepts Medicare and most major insurance plans. We are not contracted with Medicaid. Please contact your insurance company to verify benefits prior to your visit, check to see if a referral is needed, or contact us with any questions. Your insurance may require you to pay a co-payment at the time of your appointment. (This is typically noted on the front or back of your insurance card.)

Please bring your insurance card and photo ID to your appointment.

Copays
Copayments are due at the time of service. The receptionist will collect your copay amount when you check in to the office at the front desk. We cannot bill you for this amount.

Referrals
Many insurance companies are again requiring referrals from your primary care physician in order to see a specialist. Please familiarize yourself with your insurance company's requirements. Examples of some plans that require a referral are Cigna Connect and Surefit, United Healthcare's Navigate, Compass, and Charter plans, Anthem plans purchased off the exchange, and Aetna HMO plans. This is an example only and is not intended to be a comprehensive list. Should you have a plan that requires a referral, please be prepared to provide the Referral number, amount of visits authorized, and the expiration date of the referral when calling for your appointment. Referrals must be in place prior to scheduling an appointment.

Patient Portal
Prior to your visit, we request that you load your information and medical history on to the patient portal.
This allows us to be more efficient with time in the office, and remain focused on your evaluation and treatment. Information discussed with you at the visit as well as educational information will be posted on the patient portal after your visit for your review. This can be of great benefit to you. f you have any questions regarding our portal please call for assistance.
