Is Medicare or insurance be accepted as payment?

No. Patients pay for their office visit and other services at the time of the appointment. For Medicare, the Center will be what is called a non-participating Medicare provider. Generally, this means that the Center will send the patient-member’s requests for reimbursement to Medicare on behalf of the patient-member. This is the same approach adopted by many premier healthcare providers, such as Mayo Clinic.
For other insurance, the Center is an out-of-network provider. Patients pay for their office visit and other services at the time of the appointment. The Center will send the patient-member’s requests for reimbursement to the patient’s insurance carrier, and based upon the insurance coverage, the carrier will reimburse the patient directly. Nearly all insurance plans have out-of-network coverage. You should review your insurance plan to verify your specific coverage.

Can members be referred to Mayo Clinic?

Dr. Mariano’s practice has developed a strong connection to Mayo’s Referring Physician Center to provide access for her patients wishing to receive specialty care at Mayo Clinic Scottsdale. However, Dr. Mariano also has strong referral relationships with non-Mayo physicians for those patients wishing to obtain specialty care outside of Mayo as well. Dr. Mariano firmly believes in providing referrals to those facilities that have a demonstrated track record as being of the highest quality in both patient care and customer service to her patients.
