If you are a new potential patient, please contact your insurance company to be sure that Melissa Walden is a covered provider. If Melissa Walden is not a covered provider, you can also check if you have out-of-network benefits. Please be sure to inquire about co-pays, co-insurance, and deductibles.
A co-pay is: a payment defined in the insurance policy and paid by the insured person each time a medical service is accessed.
Co-Insurance is: Your share of the costs of a covered health care service, calculated as a percent (for example, 20%) of the allowed amount for the service. You pay coinsurance plus any deductibles you owe. For example, if the health insurance or plan’s allowed amount for an office visit is $100 and you’ve met your deductible, your coinsurance payment of 20% would be $20. The health insurance or plan pays the rest of the allowed amount.
A Deductible is: the amount of expenses that must be paid out of pocket before an insurer will pay any expenses.
