Do you continue to provide all these services?
Currently, Dr. Villanova has primarily limited her practice to Acupuncture Allergy Relief / One Needle Allergy Desensitization
On a limited basis, Dr. Villanova offers comprehensive phone consultations, in-person integrative care (Western/Eastern – allopathy/acupuncture/Chinese herbal medicine), pain services and neurological scalp acupuncture
Do you accept commercial insurance reimbursement?
Unfortunately, commercial insurance companies do not reimburse directly for the scope of Dr. Villanova’s services; she does not participate in insurance plans or Medicare
However, if you have “out-of-network-benefits”, your visit may be all or partially reimbursed. You may submit a claim to your insurance company. Your coverage depends upon your plan: variables such as deductible and percent covered by the company play roles. Because Dr. Villanova is a physician, she may bill for consultations and/or for procedures
The answer to this question is different for each individual, and would need to be discussed
Do you accept Medicare?
Dr. Villanova has “opted-out” of Medicare. That means, should you choose to seek care in this practice and have Medicare, neither Dr. Villanova nor the Medicare recipient may file claims with Medicare. There is no Medicare reimbursement for services rendered in this practice
If you have “Medicare supplemental” commercial insurance, you may submit claims for reimbursement with the proper paper work from Dr. Villanova. You should check with your supplemental carrier prior to your first visit in order to determine whether or not these claims may be reimbursed
Where are you located?
As Dr Villanova has curtailed her clinical practice, and accepts patients on a case-by-case basis at this time. Visits can be arranged in Brooklyn and Manhattan
