The Bell Center does not participate with any insurance plans and is considered an Out-Of-Network Provider. Each month, you will receive a Superbill that includes information your insurance company needs to process your claim. Please note that even with out-of-network benefits, it is possible that not all services will be covered. It is strongly recommended that you contact your insurance company prior to your first appointment to confirm what, if any, out-of-network benefits you may have.
The Bell Center is not able to participate in single case agreements. You may want to negotiate directly with your insurance company to see if they will make an agreement directly with you, with the Bell Center remaining an out-of-network provider who is not a direct party to said agreement.
Dr. Bell has opted-out of Medicare. Clients with Medicare may receive services from Dr. Bell but will not be able to submit to Medicare for any reimbursement. They may submit to their secondary insurance programs for reimbursement if they have out-of-network benefits through this plan.
For individuals with TRICARE, CHAMPVA, or US Family Health Plan as a primary or secondary insurance, Dr. Bell is an authorized provider who is non-network and non-participating.

Individuals with this coverage must first be granted a Waiver for Balanced Billing Limitations by their insurer before receiving services from Dr. Bell. Dr. Bell can assist in the application for a Waiver for Balanced Billing Limitations from the insurer. Dr. Bell cannot provide services until this request is authorized and a copy is provided to Dr. Bell prior to the first visit.
