Do you continue to provide all these services?
As of 2020, 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?
Dr. Villanova provides services in–home or in-office throughout the New York City metro area and on Long Island.
