Why do I have to give the office my insurance card every time I visit the doctor?

In the past, the enrollment period for insurance coverage was January 1st of each year. Now, many employers and patients change insurance coverage at various times throughout the year. Many patients are not aware that they have new coverage. Therefore, to ensure that your insurance processes your claims and provides benefits, we have instituted a policy that all patients must show us their insurance card prior to their visit.  You may also fax the front and back of the card to our offices if you prefer. Please be sure to show all insurance information available.  Should you have an additional insurance policy for your new visit, you must disclose it.
