Billing Policy for Non-Medicare & Non-Tricare Patients
Our office uses a “Direct Pay” system. The fees for Dr. Bressler’s services are due before leaving the office. These fees are based on the time Dr. Bressler spends with you, plus the cost for any specific tests performed (such as an EKG or stress-test) plus the cost for any treatment provided such as vaccinations, injections or freezing treatments for skin conditions.
A copy of Dr. Bressler’s fees are available from the staff at the front desk, and by clicking here.
Dr. Bressler is not an “in-network” or “participating” provider for any insurance company. After you have paid your bill, you will be given documents which will easily allow you to submit your claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. The rates of reimbursement vary between insurance companies.

Acute-Problem Phone Consultation
Telephone Treatment is available for minor problems such as mild respiratory infections or urine infections. If Dr. Bressler, after reviewing your symptoms, thinks that it is safe to diagnose and treat you by phone, he will do so with the help of the nursing staff. The fee for such treatment during regular working hours is $75. For phone treatment handled exclusively by Dr. Bressler after regular business hours, the fee is $150. The fee will be charged to your credit card at the time of the treatment (or in the event of after hours or weekend treatment on the next business day). The same fees are charged for travel-related prescriptions (for example, antibiotics, sleeping pills or sea sickness medication) unrelated to an appointment.
There is a flat fee of $300 for the ArterioVision study. This technique is not covered by Medicare or insurance plans. We do not bill for this exam. This fee does not include the consultation appointment following the exam. Please see the AV link.
