After what seems to have been an eternity of waiting the practice is finally able to open. I have been able to obtain credentialing for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas, Cigna and United Healthcare. We are still awaiting to be included in Aetna and Humana. While I had applied to be part of Medicaid, I was informed by the folks at Community Health that the panel is full and that they feel that there are enough pain management physicians in the Greater San Antonio area. For that reason, I am unable to accept Medicaid patients into the practice at this time.
First day of practice opening is March 23, a special day indeed as it also happens to be my birthday as well! I couldn't ask for a better gift than the opportunity to be able to serve my patients, and return to practice the kind of medicine our community needs.
