Insurance and Billing

At the time of your visit, patients need to provide the front desk with the correct insurance information, including your insurance card to be copied. We will perform courtesy billing for you, provided you have given us all pertinent billing information. Patients will be responsible for full payment of any co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles required by their insurance company. Shore Gastroenterology Associates accepts cash, check and credit card. We also offer the option to pay bills online. Pay online using our secure server.

If your insurance requires authorization for an office visit, please contact your referring physician for that authorization prior to calling for an appointment. Please call (732) 517-0060 to confirm.


Insurance Plans We Accept

Our surgery center is dedicated to providing consumers with as much information as possible regarding potential healthcare costs. Accordingly, we have listed information on the insurers and providers the center participates in.

It is important you contact your insurance company prior to receiving services or care. Each plan is different and some provide different levels of coverage that could make a difference in your out-of-pocket costs.

  • Aetna
  • AmeriGroup
  • AmeriHealth
  • Cigna
  • Clover Health
  • Consumer Health Network (CHN)
  • Empire BCBS of New York
  • Horiozn BCBS of New Jersey
  • Magnacare/Brighton Health Plan Solutions
  • MultiPlan/PHCS/Beechstreet
  • QualCare
  • Tricare (Humana)
  • United Healthcare & Oxford Health Plans
  • US Family Health Plan
  • WellCare
  • World Trade Center Health Program

This list may not be comprehensive. For example, specialty insurers such as workers' compensation and personal injury protection ("PIP”) are not included because there are a number of different types of insurance products and we may not participate in all of them. If you do not see your plan listed on our website, we strongly recommend that you contact us or your health insurance plan to confirm whether your plan is in-network or out-of-network.

In addition, the physicians who provide care within our center might not participate in the same insurance plans as the ASC. You should check with the physician who is arranging your healthcare services to see which insurance plans the physician participates in. You should also know that these healthcare professional(s)' costs are not included in the facility's charges. They will bill separately.

Other Care Providers

We work with other providers as part of your care. In addition to a bill from the facility and the physician, you may receive a bill from another provider, depending on the nature of your procedure.
