Thank you for choosing South Shore Family Practice. We are pleased to participate in your family’s health care and look forward to establishing a lasting relationship as your primary health care provider. We are committed to providing you the best possible care and to keeping health care costs as low as possible. In order to do this, we need to keep our billing costs at a minimum.


Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. In the event that one of our providers does not have a participating agreement with your insurance plan, please be aware that some, and perhaps all of the services provided may be non-covered and you are responsible for the full amount not paid by the plan.

We do participate with many major carriers. However, policies and benefits vary greatly and can be very confusing. Therefore, it is YOUR responsibility to:

  • Ensure the provider you are scheduled with actively participates with your insurance plan.
  • Know your benefits, deductible, co-insurance and co-pay requirements prior to your visit.
  • Ensure that all pre-approval requirements are met to avoid denials or out-of-network benefits.

To obtain this information, call the member services number on your insurance card or visit the carrier website. As an added convenience, we have listed the sites of some of the major companies. This list is not intended to imply that our providers participate with these plans, but is simply a tool to aid in determining that information.
