Insurances Accepted and Office Consultation Policies:

  • Anthem Blue Cross (EXCEPT ANY PATHWAY EPO/PPO PLANS) or if you have a referral through the Industry Health Network (for Motion Picture Industry & Television Fund, Writer’s Guild of America, Screen Actors Guild, Directors Guild of America)
  • Blueshield EPO
  • Blue Shield
  • Cigna
  • Aetna
  • Tricare
  • Healthnet (EXCEPT ANY ENHANCED CARE STARTING WITH "U" AND IFP PLANS)

    • Please contact your insurance plan to verify if Dr. Bahar is in-network with your plan before you schedule an appointment with us. 

    ·  Out-of-Network PPOs: We are out of network with the following PPO insurance plans:

    •     Pacificare

    •     Community Family Care

    •     Blue Cross Pathway EPO/PPO Plans 

    •     HealthNet PPO Plans starting with "U" or IFP Plans 

     

                       Please remember that it is ultimately your responsibility to determine you or your child’s coverage. For patients who see Dr. Bahars and are indeed not considered “in network,” they or/their custodian will still be required to pay the full “insured responsibility amount” as described in the explanation of  benefits (EOB) statement they receive.

    o   Out of Network Consultation Policy: We take the full consultation fees at the time of the visit. Please call our office to inquire about out-of-network rates. We do submit all claims to your insurance and you may receive a reimbursement depending on your insurance plan benefits and whether the deductible has been met for the year.

    •     Healthcare Partners Medical Group
    •     Regal Medical Group, Lakeside Medical Group
    •     Preferred IPA of California

    •     Tricare
    •     High Desert Medical Group
    •     Bakersfield Medical Group
    •     Facey Medical Group.

    o   Before scheduling an initial consultation, all HMO patients must have an approved referral from their pediatrician or primary care provider within their medical group. We will be asking for referral numbers at the time of scheduling an appointment.

     

    ·  Cash Patients: We do accept patients who have no medical insurance. Please call our office to inquire about rates.
