The level of service offered by Mount Sinai’s Comprehensive Health Program is not available through individual practices or conventional health insurance policies. The Program is designed to provide comprehensive and integrated screening for a wide range of possible disease and health insurers typically do not provide reimbursement for these examinations. It is precisely these services that distinguish this unique program. We require all participants to sign a Notice of Disclosure from Insurance Benefits to avoid misunderstanding regarding the cost of the service. Payment is expected before the day of service. Payment may be in cash, credit card, personal check or international bank transfer.
Q: If necessary, how do I go about canceling my appointment?
If you must cancel your appointment, we require 48 hour of notice, or a penalty fee will be incurred.
