Dr. Tice approaches patient care needs from a biological-psychological-sociological-spiritual perspective. He believes it is important to understand his patients and their needs as a whole person involving each of these areas. With this understanding, he seeks to collaborate with individuals, their families and significant others to alleviate suffering and restore health.
Dr. Tice is considered an “out-of-network” physician for PPO insurance plans. He will gladly provide you with a statement so you can seek reimbursement from your insurance company for his services. He is also able to assist you in seeking reimbursement through a billing service. Some insurance plans allow patients an option for a “single case agreement.” A single case agreement is a contract the insurer makes with Dr. Tice to provide treatment for a specific individual only. Generally insurers reserve this type of agreement for persons for whom they do not have a physician with sufficient expertise, availability or within a reasonable proximity to the patient on their provider panel. Finally, Dr. Tice does not accept MediCal/Medicaid or Medicare.
