Sharon Goodmanson (New Patient Intake Coordinator):
Sharon has been with the Shankle Clinic for over two years and as the new patient intake coordinator is the first voice the patient may hear while making the first appointment. She enjoys working with her colleagues and patients. She also enjoys spending time with her daughter and with her "hobby" named Bear - her little Maltese.
Medicare Our office accepts Medicare, which means that we accept the Medicare fee schedule. Medicare usually pays 80% of their allowed fee. The patient is responsible for any remaining allowed amount including their deductible. If you are covered by a secondary insurance carrier, we will submit a claim to them after Medicare has processed the claim. PPO / Private Insurances We are "out of network"/"non-participating" for most PPO or private insurances. Insurance companies typically reimburse "out of network"/"non-participating" providers at a lower rate. The patient is responsible for the difference between the billed amount and the amount that is paid by the insurance carrier. *We recommend that you check with your insurance carrier about your individual coverage. HMO's We are not a provider for any HMO and do not accept any HMO insurances. If you wish to see our physicians you will be considered a cash patient and will be responsible for the entire visit including any testing.
