Given the changes of the Affordable Care Act, specialists, while dedicated to their patients, are increasingly constrained by the shifting health insurance system limiting their face to face patient time and limiting some specialty tests. Insurance companies are increasingly denying specialty testing they used to approve.
For patients who value more specialist access than insurance will allow, we are building a network of private pay specialists in Boston, able to give you extended time and attention.
