Do I need a referral?

Each individual healthcare plan has specific guidelines regarding referrals to specialists. Strash Foot & Ankle Care currently participates in over 190 healthcare plans. While we will make every effort to assist you with your insurance referrals, it is ultimately the patient’s responsibility to ensure a referral is provided for each visit.

What should I bring to my first appointment?

  • Insurance card(s) and a photo ID: If the appointment is for a minor, you will need to provide the legal guardian’s insurance card(s) and photo ID.
  • Medical records: Please bring relevant medical records from other physicians; results and copies of x-rays; as well as any other imaging studies and lab tests.
  • List of medications you currently take: This includes medications, herbs, vitamin supplements and over-the-counter medications.
  • A family member or friend: Consider asking a friend or family member to accompany you if you require any assistance in walking, using the restroom or completing paperwork.
  • Your concerns/questions: Take the time to make a list of anything you may want to ask your physician regarding your condition, as well as the amount of pain you’re experiencing, any loss of mobility, etc.

I need to reschedule my appointment. What do I do?

We understand emergencies or unexpected situations come up from time to time. If possible, please call 24-hours prior to your appointment time and we will gladly reschedule.

What is your payment policy?

  • The patient is responsible for any copayments and any unmet deductible amount, due and payable at the time of the office visit. As a courtesy, the office will bill your insurance company, provided you furnish the office with a completed insurance claim form or insurance card. A patient without medical insurance will be required to pay in full at the time of service.
  • Because our office accepts Medicare, we will bill Medicare on your behalf. Patients who have Medicare only are responsible for the co-insurance portion approved by Medicare. If you have a secondary insurance, we will also bill them for you. Medicare restrictions can be explained by our staff
  • Workmen’s Compensation must be pre-approved before the patient may receive services.
  • We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard and American Express.


While filing your insurance claim is a courtesy, we extend to our patients, we must emphasize that as medical care providers, our relationship is with you the patient, not your insurance company. All charges are the responsibility of the patient from the date the services are rendered. We realize that from time to time temporary financial setbacks may affect timely payments on your account. If such problems do arise, we encourage you to contact our office for assistance in the management of your account.

Our staff will gladly discuss your proposed treatment and answer any question relating to your insurance. However, not all services are a covered benefit in all contracts and you must realize that your insurance is a contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company.

If you have any questions about the above information or have uncertainty regarding your insurance coverage, please do not hesitate to ask for assistance.
