Under normal circumstances, an appointment with Dr. Reldan will last 60 minutes. The regular fee for a 60-minute visit with Dr. Reldan is $200.00. Payment is required in full at the time of service.
Payment methods accepted include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, personal check, or cash. Personal checks should be made payable to Jane R. Reldan, M.D., Inc.
Dr. Reldan does not accept any insurance plans.
There are some circumstances when a longer visit may be required; for example, a complete physical exam takes about two hours and the cost is $400. Other professional services--in or out of the office--including house calls and phone calls, will be charged in increments of 15 minutes. For example, 15 minutes beyond one hour will be billed an additional $50.00.
Unlike at most of the large and impersonal medical facilities, Dr. Reldan offers lengthy appointments which provide ample time to discuss your medical concerns, and she is able to give you her undivided attention during your visit. As a solo physician, Dr. Reldan employs neither office staff nor a billing service. An invoice is provided at the time of service. If you have PPO health insurance, you may be able to submit this invoice to your insurance company for partial or even full reimbursement of the cost of your visit with the doctor. If you have questions regarding your potential reimbursement, Dr. Reldan encourages you to contact your insurance company prior to making an appointment. All insurance plans are different. Dr. Reldan's office is unable to assist you with inquiries related to the policies of your particular health insurance provider. If you choose to schedule an appointment with Dr. Reldan, you are committed to paying the full fee on the day of your appointment. Please see the office policies for further details.
It is important to state at this point, that if you have Medicare or an HMO plan, you cannot submit the invoice for reimbursement to Medicare or to any HMO plans. This is because Medicare patients are forbidden, by order of the Federal Government, from filing their own health insurance claims, thereby excluding them from any reimbursement from their secondary insurance plans.
Dr. Reldan cannot make any HMO referrals since she is not participating in any HMO plans. However, she is happy to refer you to the doctors that she recommends to family and friends.
If you have made an appointment that you subsequently need to cancel or change, please do so at least 24 hours before the day and time of the original appointment. You can cancel an appointment by calling Dr. Reldan's cell phone at (858) 349-0613 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone who has not canceled 24 hours prior to their scheduled appointment, will be billed at the full rate of $200.00 per hour. This fee must be paid before future appointments can be scheduled.
