What to do if Tests are Necessary
Depending upon medical findings and any symptoms that you are experiencing, some diagnostic tests may be ordered, including blood work. Most of the testing is done in our CVC offices. At times, tests may be performed at an outside facility or local hospital.
Payment of all co-pays, estimated co-insurance and deductible amounts are required at your visit. Copays will be collected at check-in for your convenience.
CVC will make every effort to verify your coverage prior to your scheduled appointment, yet CVC cannot guarantee coverage of services by your insurance company.*

Seeing Your Physician
At CVC, continuity of care is important to us. Therefore, you can expect to see the same physician at your scheduled appointments. However, your physician works with a mid-level provider who may help with your healthcare needs during your treatment plan. CVC believes that cardiovascular medicine is a team effort. At CVC, we have cardiologists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, specialized technologists, and many others working together to bring you the best of care.
Will I Still See my Family Physician?
Yes. You will still see your family physician for non-cardiac issues.
In some cases, your family physician may have referred you to CVC for cardiovascular testing. In this case, your CVC physician will discuss the results and follow your cardiac care needs . Some cardiovascular conditions require that you follow up with your CVC physician on a continual basis. During this process, CVC will communicate with your PCP by sending them a letter with your test results.
Initial Prescription Fills and Refills
If a CVC physician or provider writes a prescription, you can take it to any pharmacy approved by your managed care plan or provider.
The best time to take care of prescription refills is during your office visit. At this time your physician can verify the medicines you are taking and make changes if necessary.
If you need your routine medications refilled between office visits, you should call your pharmacy with this request. The pharmacist will then contact us for a refill approval.
Our pharmacy refill phone number is 602.482.7073
