Some specific considerations depending on your health care arrangements:  
 

 
If you are using private insurance to help cover your care:
 

- We are happy to provide you medical care.  We are credentialed with most major insurance companies.  You may apply your in-network benefits if we are enrolled in your insurance company's network.  Otherwise, if you have out-of-network benefits (such as if you are enrolled in most PPO/POS plans), you may apply those to your care as allowed by your plan.  Please call us to verify our network participation. Please bring your current insurance card to your appointment and keep us informed of any changes in your insurance coverage and contact information.  We will make a good faith effort to verify your insurance benefits on or before the day of your visit, however, we suffer the same uncertainties as you do as to when and what your insurance company may cover and the information we obtain and share with you is not a guarantee of coverage.  All co-pay's are always due at the time of your visit as required by insurance carriers.  Any remaining balance for your visit will be billed to your insurance company by our billing partner.  Any balance unpaid by your insurance will be billed to you.  

 


 
If you are paying out of pocket for your care:
 
- We are happy to provide you medical care.  We accept cash, check, or credit card for payment.  Your full payment is due at the time of visit.  
 

 
If you have Medicare, Medicaid or a Medicare replacement/supplement program:

- We are happy to provide you medical care.  However, please note that Dr. Tamayo opted out of Medicare and Medicaid as of April 1, 2008.  You may be seen at Personal Med Clinic under a “private contract” which will allow you to pay the charges for your care to this practice out of your own pocket. Neither you, nor Personal Med Clinic, may bill Medicare or Medicaid for your office visit. However, you may use your benefits for any covered medications, labs, imaging studies, specialist referrals or durable medical equipment that we may order for you.  We accept cash, check, or credit card for payment.  Your full payment is due at the time of visit.  
 

 
If you are seeking care related to a Texas Workforce Commission claim or an evaluation for other disability benefits:

 

- We are happy to provide you medical care. However, please note that our staff are not providers for the Texas Workforce Commission. If you seek to have your visit covered as part of your claim, please seek care from a physician who is enrolled in their program. Additionally, we do not have the training or expertise to perform evaluations, provide opinions, or complete applications for disability programs of any kind. If we treat you for a medical condition and you later apply for disability benefits, we will be happy to share the records of our evaluation and treatment with any program you ask us to by signed request.  We accept cash, check, or credit card for payment.  Your full payment is due at the time of visit.
