Visiting the Office
When you visit Dr. Rishi at Arizona Allergy Associates, you gain access to many different forms of allergy treatment and testing. If you have insurance, visits are usually covered – you may only need to pay a co-pay. The number of times you can visit the office are often unlimited, depending on the severity of your allergies and the determination of your physician. You should also make sure to have your referral information handy at your first visit.
Testing for Allergies
Our office offers allergy testing via pricking the skin or using other testing techniques. Often, tests for allergies are not included in patient office visit benefits. There are many different insurance companies, each with their own policies and limitations. Some insurance policies will only cover a percentage of the testing fee while others have a limit on the number of tests as well as the type of tests that are included.
Treatment of Allergies
Treating allergies usually involves what is known as allergen immunotherapy – vaccines that lessen the effects of allergens. While many insurance companies cover the treatment of allergies, there may be limitations and other fine print that you have to pay attention to. If you have any questions or problems, speak with a representative at your insurance company for clarification and accurate information about your policy and coverage.
Our team of medical professionals are available to assist you when it comes to determining your benefits. However, your insurance company can provide you with even more information about your coverage and any limitations that may exist. We have experience working with many different insurance companies, so feel free to ask us any questions you may have.
