We do work with some insurance companies, including Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield
(Federal, Virginia, and Healthkeepers programs), and CIGNA.
We are not providers for Tricare Prime, though you can use your Prime Point-of-Service
Benefits, meaning that you must pay in full at the time of service and file an insurace
receipt we will give you to Tricare. The deductible is higher ($300) and copayments
are also higher (50%). In some cases, you can get a referral from your PCM, in which
case you may be reimbursed at a higher rate. We no longer accept assignment for
Tricare Standard, which means you will pay for sessions in full (at the Tricare Prime
rate) and file for reimbursement.
Dr. Burdett is a non-participating Tricare provider, meaning we cannot file claims
for you, but you can file the claims yourself and you may be reimbursed by Tricare--contact
Tricare for more information.
We are no longer Medicare providers, and Medicare will not reimburse you, and it
is our understanding that your secondary insurance will not either, though you may
wish to check with them on this. You will need to sign a waiver acknowledging this
at the office.
Please note that you are responsible for knowing your mental health benefits. We
cannot guarantee that information we obtain from your insurance company is accurate,
as they don’t always have access to the latest information on your benefits. Check
your written materials on your policy or contact your HR person.
Please note that we are NOT providers for Care First, United Healthcare, MAMSI/Optimum
Choice, MdIPA, Kaiser, Alliance, Medicaid (this includes Healthkeepers Plus and Amerigroup),
Guardian, or Aetna.
If we are not a provider for your insurance, you can pay in full at the time of service
and then file the claim to your insurance company. Check to see if your insurance
company has out-of-network benefits. This does NOT apply to CareFirst--we cannot
give you an insurance receipt due to a contract dispute.
