We are excited to announce, effective as of November 1, 2019, Pulmonary and Sleep Specialists of Northeast Georgia formally aligned with Northeast Georgia Health System (NGHS).
On the surface, not much changed. You’ll receive the same great care, provided by the same physicians and staff, at the same locations. Behind the scenes, though, both groups will be clinically integrated to improve care coordination and collaborate on quality goals to take your care to the next level.
If you visit us for care after November 1, you may receive a bill from NGHS for most of the services you receive at our office. Included with this letter is a page that shows you what that bill will look like and how to read it.
We will continue to send our own bills for insurance plans not accepted by NGHS, durable medical equipment and outpatient prescription drugs mixed or administered by the practice. Please know that the practice will continue to accept the same insurance plans we accepted prior to November 1, 2019.
Pulmonary and Sleep Specialists of Northeast Georgia and NGHS have a rich history of working closely together to improve pulmonary care in the communities we serve. For example: together, we initiated one of the state’s largest lung cancer screening programs in Gainesville, Braselton and Winder – where lung cancer is especially prevalent. Since the program’s initiation, thousands of screenings have been completed and many lives saved.
We look forward to caring for you for years to come. If you have any questions, please call Pulmonary and Sleep Specialists of Northeast Georgia at 770-586-0300.
Insurance Acceptance – We accept most insurance companies, including Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare and Ambetter.
