Insurances Accepted and Billing

At Houston Thyroid and Endocrine, we have competitive cash rates for our uninsured patients and out-of-network patients. The patient is responsible for knowing what is covered as a copay or deductible and ensuring proper insurance coverage. 

We no longer accept BCBS Medicare Blue Advantage HMO. We also are not contracted with MyBlueHealth, which begins with alpha prefix: T2G in the member ID number.

Insurance Contracts are always changing, if you have any questions, please contact the office for specific instances.
