Insurance coverage for the treatment of hemorrhoids and other anal problems at Hemorrhoid Treatment of Florida.
Dr. Shapiro participates with major health insurance plans, which cover the procedures he offers. This includes the Ultroid procedure, traditional hemorrhoid treatment, and the O’Regan banding for internal hemorrhoids.
Most insurance plans in Florida cover the initial evaluation for hemorrhoids with a complete history and physical examination. This commonly also includes an anoscopy. The evaluation and treatment of anal fissures, external hemorrhoids, pruritis ani with itching and perianal dermatitis is also covered. Depending on your insurance plan, a copayment determined by your policy may be required.
At The Hemorrhoid Treatment Center of Florida, we also accept patients covered by Medicaid.
We believe that patients suffering from hemorrhoids that interfere with their quality of life should be able to find relief without the paying the price for expensive medical bills. Following this philosophy, our charges for patients without insurance coverage are based on the Medicare allowable rates and are not inflated.
If you have questions about your coverage, please call the office at (727) 724-4279 and we will do our best to explain or call your insurance carrier to get the answers you need. We’re proud to continue our mission of offering affordable hemorrhoid treatment relief for men and women throughout Florida, including those in the Tampa Bay community and surrounding areas.
