Blue Shield PPO
Dr Shupe accepts Corporate/Government Blue Shield PPO – for health care reform Blue Shield PPO you must meet your out of network deductible before they will reimburse for visits.
Out of Network PPOs
When you use your PPO plan out-of-network – you pay for services received and Dr Shupe will issue a superbill which you can submit to your insurance company. If you have not yet met your out-of-network deductible for the year the visit fees are applied towards your deductible. Once you have met your out-of-network deductible for the year, then your insurance company will reimburse a percentage of the cost of your visit (Typically 50-80%).
