Insurance & Fees

Dr. Resnick is committed to the success of your medical treatment and care. Please remember that payment of your bill is part of your treatment and care with him.

Dr. Resnick is contracted with many Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) insurance plans, but has found it necessary to care for some patients from outside of their carriers network (out-of-network), in order to provide the best care and service possible. We urge you to call your insurance plan so you understand services that are included and are not included by your health plan. The office will file insurance claims for all services, even for out-of-network patients. Dr. Resnick desires to care for anyone who seeks his services and will make his services affordable even if he is not a contracted provider.

If you have questions about insurance coverage, out-of-network coverage or billing, please contact:
