Heck, my doc has a list of insurance companies he does not accept. If you want to stay with him, and your insurance pays, he will bill your new company, but you pay the difference between what he wants and what they pay. You agree, or find yourself another doc. Plain and simple.

He does not 'accept' that as payment.....

My Blue Cross does not pay his rate...I wind up picking up a bit.....but since I have 2000 deductible....it doesn't usually matter anyway!.....but I get a negotiated rate.....

Each year it changes.....

I suspect a lot of other docs will be the same way....and no, my doc won't accept new Medicare patients and never has.....you either be with him for years until you turn 65....or you find yourself a cheapie doc.....
and good luck on that...you'll get an Indian or Mexican or something else......that provide services to the cheapie insurance plans......better than nothing....I suppose.....
