Insurances Accepted

 Some Insurance companies are requiring patients to select a Primary Care Physician (PCP).  This means they are restricting your primary care to just that healthcare provider and will not pay for you to see anyone else.   PCP information is generally listed on the front of your insurance ID card.   If a PCP is required, but not selected by the patient, the insurance company will “auto assign” you to one. 
** This fact often goes unnoticed by the patient. **
Please review your insurance ID card for any PCP information.  If there is a healthcare provider listed, and it is not a healthcare provider for Watertown Internists, then we cannot see you as a patient here

TO FIX THIS:  Before your appointment, you will need to call the Member Services number located on the back of your ID card and request a PCP change.  Make sure to note to whom you spoke to and write down any call reference/confirmation number they might give you.   This will be important should they try to deny paying your medial claims.  Please advise staff during check-in that you have updated your PCP.
