Q:  How much will my insurance copayment be?

A:  Your copayment will depend on which insurance plan you have, and on whether you have met your deductible for the year (if you have not yet met your deductible for the year, your copayment will be $90).  Every individual's situation is different - please contact your health plan provider to inquire about your co-payment for your specific plan.  


Q:  If I have an HMO plan, can I make an appointment without a referral?

A:  If you are covered by an HMO plan, your primary care physician will need to refer you to a specialist (Dr. Hsu is an ENT specialist).  We regret that we cannot make an appointment without a referral from your primary care physician.  Please contact your health plan provider or primary care doctor for more information.
