I learned from another ocular melanoma patient today, that Shields & Shields (Dr. Carol Shields and her husband, Dr. Jerry Shields) have suddenly stopped accepting United Health Care insurance. Patients with this insurance coverage were shocked to be told they will need to self pay when they want care from Drs Shields!
Wills Eye Hospital still accepts UHC as does Dr. Sato and Thomas Jefferson Hospital, where a lot of patients seek second opinions or treatment when their OM metasticizes.
Patients who were caught off guard, were told everyone was notified about this in advance by mail. If someone has a copy of this letter, unsigned, from the front desk at the hospital.
