Insurance Information

We accept most major insurance plans including Medicare; however, we are not currently accepting any new Medicaid patients.  Our most commonly accepted plans have stars in the list below. 

If you have a question about coverage, please call the billing department at 828.304.0400.  If you are unsure about our network status or referrals requirements, it is best to call your insurance company directly using the number on the back of your card.  They will be able to tell you if Carolina Foot & Ankle or any of our physicians are in network as well as your benefits for a specialist visit.
