With extensive knowledge of the shoulder and the latest, minimally invasive surgical techniques, Dr. Mendoza has earned a reputation as a top orthopedic shoulder surgeon in New York City. Widely sought after for second opinions, he has been helping patients accelerate recovery and get back to their active lives for more than 30 years.
In order to best serve his patients with personalized and best-in-class care, Dr. Mendoza is an out-of-network provider. Please note that most health insurance plans provide out-of-network benefits for members, meaning that patients are commonly reimbursed for some of their out-of-pocket treatment costs.
Our billing staff is happy to assist with answering your questions about treatment costs and will contact your health insurance company on your behalf to determine the amount of coverage you can expect. Our goal is to minimize your concern about insurance and out-of-pocket costs so you can focus on getting the high quality care you deserve.
Dr. Mendoza’s fees fall within most health insurance companies’ guidelines for the “Usual, Customary and Reasonable” (UCR) charges. However, patients are responsible for any deductibles or co-payments that the insurance company does not cover.
A referral from your general practitioner is not required to see Dr. Mendoza for a consultation, second opinion or to be treated at his practice, including surgical treatment.
If you have questions about insurance and billing, please contact our office today. We look forward to getting you the personalized care you need to get back to your active life.
