Payment

Dr. Gelbart accepts several types of insurance. If he does not accept your insurance, he can provide a superbill, which you can give to your insurance for some reimbursement.

Even if your insurance is on this list, whether he is in YOUR network depends on your plan. We will check your eligibility before your first appointment to determine if he is in-network and whether you need to meet your deductible before insurance will cover visits.

Cancellations & Fees

If cancelled at least 1 business day in advance, the patient will not be charged for a cancelled appointment. If the appointment was not cancelled within 1 business day, the patient will be billed for the whole appointment. Insurance does not cover that cost, so the patient will be responsible for that fee.
