MEDICARE PATIENTS

Dr. Tarlow can and will  treat you for your knee problems under Medicare's specific rules governing "opt out physicians". He enjoys caring for people that have Medicare coverage. He sees and treats Medicare Beneficiaries in his office and at the hospital. Dr. Tarlow can treat you but he is NOT a participating physician with Medicare so your medicare, secondary and supplemental plans will not cover your services with Dr. Tarlow. Medicare patients treated by Dr. Tarlow pay Advanced Knee Care directly at the time the services being rendered. The cash fee schedule (on this website) is the amount that you will pay directly to Dr. Tarlow for treatment rendered. If you are a Medicare Beneficiary and would like to be treated by Dr. Tarlow that would be wonderful – please call to schedule an appointment. All other services related to your care including hospital, anesthesia, assistant surgeon, physical therapy, outside Xray/MRI/CT scan and lab work IS covered by Medicare/Supplemental and paid for by Medicare/Supplemental at prevailing terms.
