A big advantage to using WESTMED Medical Group is the wide range of insurance coverage accepted. This means you should be able to keep your doctors even if you find you have to change insurance plans. We care equally about every patient regardless of the insurance provider.
WMG is affiliated with White Plains and Greenwich Hospitals. If you need to be admitted to the hospital, please contact the hospital directly to determine if it and its respective staff members are participating providers in your plan. While a patient at these hospitals, you will be cared for by your WMG provider as well as hospitalists who are employed by WMG and who are participating providers in all the health plans in which WMG is a participating provider.
You will find below a list of health plans with which WMG is participating. This list of participating plans is being provided to you as a courtesy. We recommend that before you select a healthcare plan or make any changes to your present plan, you contact your healthcare provider. You are ultimately responsible for the selection of a healthcare plan and for understanding the benefits provided thereunder.
If WMG is not a participating provider in your plan, and if the services to be provided are non-emergent, then upon your request, WMG will be pleased to provide you with a written response. This will include the amount or estimated amount you will be billed for the healthcare services being considered, absent any unforeseen circumstances that may arise whenever healthcare services are provided.
In most instances, all services that the WMG-affiliated providers are arranging for will be with other WMG providers. This includes, but is not limited to, surgical assistant, radiology services, laboratory services and pathology services. However, there are some exceptions. Before selecting a provider, please call your healthcare provider to determine if a specific provider participates in your plan.
WMG has an agreement with Westchester Anesthesiologists, P.C. to provide anesthesia services for procedures performed at WMG.
