APPOINTMENTS:
Patients are seen 9am-5pm, on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and some Wednesdays. Appointments are made over the phone, and referrals are not necessary unless your insurance plan requires one.

INSURANCES ACCEPTED:
Participating with most major health companies, including Medicare, Tricare for Life, Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Health Net, and Cigna, although not all plans within a company may be covered. For instance, Blue Cross Blue Shield has withdrawn its advantage plan for 2019. Preference is for a straight Medicare plan with a supplement.
Aetna, Humana, and Health Choice have not offered contracts.

PREPARING FOR YOUR VISIT:
Please bring a current list of your medications with their doses to every appointment. Also remember your driver's license and insurance card(s), and your copay if required by your insurance plan. Cash, check and credit card are all accepted.

MEDICATION REFILLS:
Please allow 48 hours when you need refills, and plan ahead for weekends, holidays, and vacations. Although the usual standard is to call the pharmacy for refills, please call Dr. Reed directly at (520)780-8748, leaving the medication name, strength, number used each day, and whether 30- or 90-day supplies are preferred. Not all pharmacies have updated databases, and their faxes may be inadvertently misrouted.

PATIENT PORTAL:
The online patient portal is a government mandated but secure way to access personal health information, view account balances and statements, and pay bills online. For any patient or medication issues, please contact Dr. Reed directly at (520)780-8748 by leaving a message that will be picked up that day.
