Does Horizon Medical take my insurance plan?
No, we are not a preferred provider on any plans. You will need to pay in full at your visits, but we will help you file with your insurance to gain reimbursement back. Call your Insurance plan for more specifics about your coverage. Things have become very complicated in recent years. Be sure you know your plan. Medicare patients will need to sign a waiver to allow the practice to charge extra fees as necessary, for non-covered services.
What extra Fees might I expect?
Horizon Medical provides many services not covered, or only partially covered by insurance plans. We do our best to work with you and your insurance to minimize your out-of-pocket expenses, but you will likely be billed extra charges, depending on your selection of services.
What if I want both Traditional and Alternative services?
This is no problem. We encourage you to explore this site and learn more about all our Alternative, Mind-Body-Spirit, and cosmetic/Spa services. We frequently combine modalities in treatment plans.
Can I bring my Kids to the practice?
Please bring your whole family! Our providers practice Family Medicine, who adore caring for an entire family! (Check out our Pediatric page, too.) It provides such unique care opportunities, when the physician is involved with everyone in the family circle.
Here's an example: In treating a Man with hypertension, his wife with Depression Disorder, and their 7-yr-old child with chronic asthma, the Family Physician has the knowledge of the fact that Dad is a smoker, which is likely exacerbating the child's asthma, and his failure to quit is causing friction in the marriage, setting off the wife's depression. This example illustrates the power of this practice model. A pediatrician only seeing the child may not even know about these connections, and might simply increase medication.
Why does Horizon Medical sell Supplements and Vitamins?
As a more Holistic and Naturopathic doctor, patients are often prescribed/recommended to take nutritional supplements and Vitamins. Dr. Korcz thought to provide convenience to the patient by offering a high-quality, Physician-Grade product that she can trust, right in the office for purchase. This also aides in the patient getting the correct product/doses of their supplements.
Not only will you get a superior effect from your Vitamins and Supplements you need, but you have the opportunity to further support the efforts and ministry of Horizon Medical. We have competitive prices, so do not hesitate to support our practice, rather than helping the local Big-Name pharmacy, Nutrition Center, or "___-Mart" get wealthier.
How Can I support Horizon to keep their services so unique?
Remember that only through your supporting this practice can we continue to provide such a high quality of care and services. Without our patient's support in a variety of ways, we would have to be like every other Primary Care practice, seeing too many patients per day, and spending as little time as possible with them.
Therefore, please buy your supplements, Vitamins, and certain medications through us, and take advantage of our many Integrative and Alternative services - many of which may decrease your need for taking prescription drugs with side-effects.
Are the Pharmacy/dispensary Services really the same meds as other pharmacies?
Of course. We carry a number of quality, low-price generic medications to treat everything from blood pressure and diabetes, to allergies and eczema. Support our practice by buying your meds with us, and you not only get the same quality pharmaceuticals with convenience, but you also might even save money, as many of our meds are priced below your insurance company copay.
If I am a Blood Pressure patient, can I sign up for a weight loss program?
Absolutely! We encourage this participation. Losing weight is proven to lower blood pressure! An existing patient will also enjoy lower costs for the weight loss programs than a patient that is only involved with our practice in this capacity. You may be asked to come for additional visits specifically related to weight loss, and these visits may carry an extra charge on top of your usual copays for simple Blood Pressure Checks. Often, though, we can combine these services and save you even more money!
Is Acupuncture painful?
This is a common question and fear of patients. Contrary to what you may have thought, acupuncture is NOT painful. There is a pinch on needle insertion, and then, the body adapts to the presence of the needle, and no pain is felt. Often, we connect electrostimulation to acupuncture needles, creating a warm and even ticklish sensation.
However, if you are still fearful, or unconvinced, we can perform acupressure using the acupuncture points, but without needles. This is, however, not as effective as needles. Once comfortable with acupressure, we may try to progress to acupuncture.
Does Horizon Medical endorse only one Faith?
No. It is a firm belief of the practice to incorporate the PATIENT'S Faith in their healing process. Providers and their families are of the Judeo-Christian tradition, but we never discriminate on any basis. They will do their best to support and incorporate your faith and prayer into your treatment plan, as a support of Mind-Body-Spirit medicine, essential to true health. (See more about our Mind-Body-Spirit services on this site.)
Can I get a Botox treatment at the same time as my Diabetes check-up?
Sure! See more of our Spa/Cosmetic services on the web site, too. Do remember that cosmetic services are never covered by insurance, so have your payment ready at the visit. You can notify the receptionist that you wish to add this service to your regular office visit.
What if I need a Primary doctor, but have a specialist for one of my issues?
We are happy to be your Medical Home, and will work with your specialist, too. Together, we can even improve your health! Check out all our diagnostic tests and procedures under services, too. You may find that you don't even need to be seeing a specialist as often, or at all.
