**We do not take Aetna Better Health.
Additionally, we will accept any other PPO plan plan not on the above list. However, if we are not in-network with the PPO (not one of the companies listed above), the patient may be responsible for a larger portion than if they see a physician that is in their network.
***We Do Not Take Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois HMO. Please call the number on your card to see if they will pay for your visit.
***We do not take IlliniCare Health Plans
***We do not take Blue Cross Blue Shield Community Family Health Plan
The HMO issue is a difficult one. Here’s our interpretation: If your BCBS HMO card has an affiliated hospital with it (Advocate, Illinois Masonic, or Presence Health) then they will not cover your visit with us. Here’s what you need to do: Contact your insurance company. We suggest contacting your insurance company’s customer service department by calling the number located on your card to help you locate a provider.
The Cost of Innovative Self-Pay Plan
No insurance? No problem. At Innovative Express Care, we want you to know the cost of your treatment up front. Nobody likes getting a huge bill in the mail after treatment. We work hard to give you high quality, efficient care, and will inform you of the costs of EVERYTHING so you have full control before, during, and after your visit. We call this plan: The Innovative Self-pay Plan.
Innovative Basic Plan – $150
This is a basic visit for possible flu, strep, UTI or a simple workup or treatment for fever. This visit involves 1 test (rapid flu, rapid strep, or urine testing), but does not involve blood testing.
Innovative Complex Plan – $250
This is for a more complex visit for anything involving blood work, x-ray, and any laceration repair. **Things not included in this price: crutches, boot, splints, prescription medications and any medical equipment.
Innovative Follow-up Plan – $75
This involves any follow-up for this same condition.
Innovative Prescription Medication Plan – $15
If we have the medication we prescribe for you, most medications are $15 for the first medication and $10 for any other medications. Yes, that’s amazing considering a self-pay Z-pak at Walgreen’s is over $75.
One footnote on certain lab tests: There are some conditions that need an outside lab to process more complex lab tests, such as STD testing. We send some of these tests to our outside lab, and they will bill you for this separately. We only use the highest quality and most cost-effective labs in the Chicago-land area, and let’s be honest, it’s important to get the right results!
Other simple pricing includes a visit for only vaccines (tetanus shot, school, camp, or employment physicals):
|Camp, sports & annual school physicals (ages 21 and under1)||$60|
|Administrative physicals (college and other school, elderly care, employment)||$70|
|PPD/Tuberculosis testing (including results)||$30|
|Annual Checkup/Office Visit (does not include lab testing)||$70|
1Camp, sports and school physicals not typically covered by insurance. Payment is due at time of service. Certain exceptions, including age restrictions, may apply. Please call us for additional information. Patients who require additional physical forms to be completed will be charged an additional $15 at the time of visit.
