frequently asked questions

What payment methods do you accept?

Cash, Check, or Credit Card.

To keep our costs low, we do not receive insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare.

What Insurers is Clark Family Medicine affiliated with?

Clark Family Medicine is non-affiliated with any insurers/HMOs/hospitals, so it is advantageous for you to maintain a physician-patient relationship with a primary care physician in your insurance network or a physician who has hospital-admitting privileges.

You can seek out your regular network physician when you need ongoing primary care follow-up, and when you need extensive testing, hospitalization, or have “more serious” conditions (disability determinations, chronic pain management, chronic nervous conditions, etc.). Serious conditions are best treated by specialists.

What if I am on Medicare?

If you are on Medicare, you can still come to see Dr. Clark. However, we have “opted-out” of Medicare. You will need to sign an opt-out form, which we will provide, prior to seeing Dr. Clark (please let the receptionist know when checking in). We do not receive Medicare as payment, and we do not file Medicare.

Since we have opted-out, Medicare patients are not allowed to file our office charge with Medicare, and payment is due at the time of service. All Medicare patients are encouraged to establish a doctor-patient relationship with a Medicare physician (such as a geriatrician or a general internist).

What if I have private insurance?

If you have private insurance you can still come see Dr. Clark. However, we do not accept private insurance. Also, we do not “code” claims or file private insurance. We can provide you with a non-coded encounter form if you wish to self-code your visit and file it with your insurance.
