Today… I saw my normal doctor this morning (I am now officially in the IHFS system and he is accepting it) and the visit was covered by a $15 co-pay (normally $69.00 for a patient with no insurance). We’ll see how it is all billed out and if there is any additional cost outside of the accepted rate negotiated between IHFS and the doctor’s office.
The doctor’s office wasn’t sure what Vetcare was when I walked in (I did a lookup on the “Illinois Health Connect” and my Doctor was listed on it with a PCP # and a I brought a print out of that with me as proof), so it helped my showing that and my IHFS medical card also… plus a print out of the Vetcare Webpage that shows services allowed along with the listed co-pays for specific services. This way they couldn’t claim they didn’t know (and rejected me due to their lack of information). Always be prepared is my motto.
