Don’t let questions about insurance coverage keep you from seeking treatment that can improve your life at The Valley Hospital Gamma Knife Center. Our Patient Financial Advocate, Gail Johnson, is here to help. You can contact her at 201-634-5644 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She can counsel you and your family on insurance benefits and copayments, and will contact your insurance company directly on your behalf to resolve coverage questions.
“My job is to take the worries out of the financial component of Gamma Knife treatment so you can focus on being treated and healing,” Gail says.
If you’re uninsured or underinsured, Gail will work to identify programs that assist with medical bills, such as New Jersey’s charity care or the federal Medicaid program. If you need a payment plan set up, she can help with that, too.
Gamma Knife procedures are conducted by a neurosurgeon, a radiation oncologist and skilled professionals from The Valley Hospital. While this multidisciplinary approach promotes better outcomes, we recognize that it also contributes to increased complexity with insurance, and help with understanding medical bills may be needed.
“I sometimes encounter cases where the three providers don’t all accept the patient’s insurance,” Johnson says. “In those cases, I can often work on options with the insurance company so treatment can proceed. I fight for our patients every day.”
If you have questions about the financial impact of your care or need a financial advocate to help you understand and get the most from your insurance, call Gail at 201-634-5644 or email her at email@example.com.
