Insurance, Payment Options, and Financial Assistance

Insurance Information

Healthy Louisiana/ Medicaid

If you are eligible for Medicaid, your physician must fax the referral to us at 225-343-4233 before any appointment can be scheduled.

Upon arrival, please have your current Medicaid card along with any applicable registration forms.

Private Insurance

The Emerge Center is a member of a variety of private insurance networks. To ensure that we are a participating provider for your insurance, please contact your insurance carrier. Please remember that participation in a network does not assure coverage for our services. Your personal insurance plan will determine your benefits.

Upon arrival, please have your current insurance card(s) along with any applicable registration forms.  You will be responsible for any co-payments, deductibles and charges not covered by insurance. Clients not within the network are responsible for full payment at the time services are rendered.

We will provide a receipt for you which includes the information necessary for reimbursement with your insurance company.  For services not covered by insurance, please contact our office for private pay options.

Patient Responsibility

Although we do everything we can to ensure that your child receives the services he or she needs, it is your responsibility to know the inclusions and exclusions of your insurance policy. Please contact your insurance provider(s) to ensure that your services are covered. It is the responsibility of each patient to be aware of benefits provided by his/her carrier and plan.

CareCredit

We are pleased to offer our patients the option to pay via a CareCredit® card, North America’s leading patient payment program.

CareCredit is the credit card exclusively for healthcare service interest rates or other costly penalties. You can get low monthly payments for healthcare procedures not commonly covered by insurance, including dental procedures. Plus, you can use your card for all follow-up appointments.
