Here is a more detailed list of the insurance plans Dr. Birdwell can accept, and some she cannot. We are often asked, "Why don't you take my insurance?" Most of the time, we have tried to contract with an insurance plan and were told, "There are already enough Primary Care Physicians (PCP) in your area that are contracted with our company. We are not looking to add any doctors to our network right now." This was the case with United Healthcare, for example. The insurance plans offer contracts as the number of members enrolled in their plans exceeds what they consider the capacity of the doctors in the area. If the insurance company feels like 2 or 3 doctors are enough to handle the load, then you are limited to those 2 or 3 doctors if you have their plan.
