3) Do I have to file my own insurance claims?

  • No, we take care of all the paperwork for you. 


4) Do I need a referral from my primary care doctor to get a treatment at the Bronx Community Wellness Center?

  • Usually, it is NOT necessary to receive a referral from your primary care physician. However, a referral, along with any medical notes or diagnosis done by your primary care physician can help us adequately determine your medical history and better prepare your treatment plans.


5) What do I do if my insurance plan does does cover treatments but NOT at the Bronx Community Wellness Center?

  • If you know that your insurance covers treatments, you can still get treated in our facility.  You pay the cash discounted price and receive a "Superbill" which you can then submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement.
