Insurance

Your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company and it is your responsibility to know the limits and benefits. CMG will assist your insurance company in processing your claim when necessary: however, you are ultimately responsible for the payment of your account.

We will file insurance claims only for the plans in which we participate at any given time. These plans currently include:

AETNA:PPO; POS starting with 'W' or all numbers; No HMO

BCBS PPO & BCBS Federal

MDIPA CareFirst Blue Choice
OneNet PPO  MAMSI * 
Optimum Choice  United Health Care *
Champus CIGNA
 Tricare GEHA

Due to variations in policies, it is your responsibility to check with us and your insurance plan to be sure they consider us as participating providers.

As a patient of CMG, we will bill your insurance company and be reimbursed directly. You are responsible for the co-payment and deductibles at the time of service. There will be a $5 processing fee for any additional forms that must be completed by the billing office. We do not file secondary insurances.

If your insurance denies payment for services rendered for any reason, we will bill you directly and payment is expected within 30 days. Your insurance company may reimburse only part of your claim if:

  1. You have not met your deductible.
  2. Our fees are above their usual customary rate.
  3. Your policy does not cover the service rendered.
  4. Patient is not covered at the time of service.

There is a $25 charge for all returned checks.

You should communicate directly with your insurance company to settle any disputes over claims and reimbursements. We appreciate your cooperation. Inquiries or concerns regarding your bills should be directed to CMG’s billing department at 240-482-1544 or 240-482-1545.
