Dear Valued Patients,

We understand how confusing it is to select an insurance plan or figure out if your plan is in network with your provider. It is also very difficult for the doctor to understand this as well. Here is the information we currently have for 2016.

Village Health Partners accepts plans that cover well over 95% of the commercially insured patients in the DFW area. In addition to the previous plans we accept, we have added a variety of new plans and are trying to get on others we have not been in network with in the past. The latter often can take months.

To help sort this out, we have listed our most common plans Village Heath Partners accepts under Resources tab. There are many, many more, in fact too many to list. We have not dropped any plans, however insurance companies create narrow network product offerings for the exchange that we may not be included in. Because this is so important to understand, we recommend our patients call their insurance carriers to confirm their plan is on the comprehensive list of plans we accept.

Independence Medical Village Accepting Traditional Medicare Patients

Our Independence Medical Village location is currently accepting Traditional Medicare coverage for new patients. For more information or questions, contact us at 972-596-9511.

Changes to Accepted Insurance Plans

As a result of the Affordable Care Act, there are several new insurance plans with which we are not contracted. While we still work with the providers that offer these plans, the new plans are not included in the existing contracts we have with the providers.

In order to avoid any unexpected costs to you related to future visits, please review our accepted insurance providers and plans before scheduling your next appointment.

We are aware that this may cause some confusion and frustration, but please bear with us as we all work to adjust to the changes that come with the Affordable Care Act and healthcare reform.
