Patient Comments (1)
West Hartford, CT |
Dr. Bushley is an in-network provider at United Health Care Complete where he is listed as an Ophthalmologist. But, in fact, if you visit him for a routine eye exam, which is covered by United Health Care Complete, your coverage will be denied because even though he is an ophthalmologist, his services are only covered as a physician. This is extremely deceptive in my opinion and I question the ethics of this situation.
We are sorry you had a problem with your services being denied by your insurance carrier. If you call the office, we would be happy to try to work out a solution to whatever the issue was with your visit to this provider and your insurance. Thank you, Consulting Ophthamologists, PC
