FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you accept insurance?

Neither of our doctors are enrolled in managed care plans. However, the majority of our patients use the out-of-network benefits offered by their insurance to cover some of the costs. Our staff will submit claims to your insurance carrier and assist you with reimbursement.

Do you participate in Medicare?

Dr. Weitzman will bill Medicare patients at Medicare determined rates. As a non-par provider, Dr. Weitzman will collect payment at the time of the appointment and our patients are then reimbursed directly by Medicare.

What hospitals are you affiliated with?

New York Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical Center, and Hospital for Special Surgery.

What age range do you treat?

Late teens to all adults.

What should I bring to my appointment?

Especially for first appointments, please bring a copy of all your medications, your insurance card, and if you have had any imaging, a copy of your films (Chest Xray, CT scan, or MRI) on a CD. Our doctors can access records from the hospital and local health care providers in most cases. Also, it is always a good idea to write down a list of questions you may have for the doctor about your condition.
