HealthFirst Health Plan – New York Urology Specialists

Our policy is to make available excellent urology care to all patients without regard to their insurance policy.  For patients with health insurance policies that cover our fees, your costs will depend on your copay, deductible and co-insurance policy of your insurance plan.  For patients with insurance policies that do not cover the fees for care provided by New York Urology Specialists, discounted self-pay rates are available for patient who prepay for their care in full at the time of visit.

New York Urology Specialists does not accept HealthFirst Health Plan as a method of payment. New York Urology Specialists does not participate in Medicaid and does not accept any Medicaid plans.  Patients with HealthFirst can still make appointment to see New York Urology Specialists urologists. You would have to pay out of pocket for all care provided by our experienced urologists.


If you have any questions about your insurance benefits, to schedule a consultation or if you need a second opinion, please contact us.  


Why are you not in-network with HealthFirst Health Plan?

We understand that many patients with HealthFirst Health Plan are looking for high quality urology care but have difficulty finding urologists who treat complex urological problems who accept their plan in-network in New York City, Brooklyn, Queens, Long Island, Westchester and surrounding areas.

Just as there are inexpensive drive-by fast food restaurants and more expensive sit-down restaurants with chef-prepared means, medical care is offered by a variety of providers.

HealthFirst offers New York Urology Specialists rates that are far below the market rates that it and other plans pay for high quality care in New York area to other providers of urology care.  As adequate payments are necessary to provide high-quality urology care for complex urological problems we have made a decision not to compromise our commitment to quality. We understand that health care is expensive.  While the quality of care is a paramount consideration, the costs of care are important to consider as healthcare costs can be considerable for patients with significant medical and urological problems.  

I cannot afford to pay my out-of-network deductible and copay. What can I do?

Please contact HealthFirst Health Plan and tell them that you want New York Urology Specialists to be an in-network provider.  If your coverage is through your employer, contact your human resources department and tell them that you’re not happy that New York Urology Specialists is not part of the network.
