All too often, patients try to limit the number of visits to the doctor's office, possibly putting themselves at risk of serious health problems. AVISTA and most insurance companies encourage more frequent, as needed visits. Insurance companies are smart, and they know that waiting too long to see the doctor costs more money, and AVISTA knows that delays can make things harder to treat. Most insurance related visits are limited to one (1), and sometimes two (2) issues.
There used to be a time not long ago when most insurance didn't care when, or even if, you went to see the doctor. Patients could stack their symptoms before making the trip to the annual 3-4 hour doctor appointment. Today, appointments still get stacked, but in a different way. Medical necessity often requires more from the visit and may include blood draws or injections. And sometimes a simple office visit leads to additional follow up appointments. Don't delay! Call AVISTA today.
Fortunately, the AVISTAmed-way, or "putting the patient first" philosophy, virtually eliminates all the unnecessary wait-time for its patients. At AVISTA, patients can be in and out of the doctor's office in 20-30 minutes. It is improving the patient's overall experience and their health.
