If you're suffering from heel pain, ingrown toenails, or other foot and ankle conditions, a podiatrist is the best person for the job! You may be wondering if your insurance will cover the services provided by a specialist.
Health insurance companies categorize podiatrists and specialist providers. Specialists are almost always covered by health plans, and you may be able to see one without a referral depending on your specific plan. If you choose the right foot and ankle clinic, administrative staff can even check your benefits for you to avoid any surprise bills.
Freeland Foot and Ankle Clinic participates with most commercial insurance plans. It's always a good idea to double-check, though! Here, you'll find a list of the most common insurance payers we participate with. If you don't see your plan listed, we encourage you to give us a call to confirm whether or not you are covered!

Complimentary Benefits Verification
When you schedule with us as a new patient, we will check your insurance benefits for you. We will review your deductible information, copays, coverage for the various durable medical equipment that we might dispense, and more!
Foot Care For Veterans
We are honored to participate with the VA Community Care Network. If you are a patient at the Saginaw VA Medical Center, please get in touch with your primary care provider, and they will send in an authorization request. Once we receive their referral, we will contact you to schedule an appointment.
What if I Don't Have Insurance?
We are always accepting new patients, insured or not. Insurance benefits should not determine whether or not you can receive necessary care! If you are uninsured and need help with a foot or ankle issue, give us a call! Our administrative team will be happy to go over your payment options and pricing information; additionally, we will work with you if you plan to pay out of pocket.
No matter your coverage and benefits, you deserve high-quality health care. Give us a call or fill out our handy online contact form and get started on your journey to a pain-free life today!
