About Your Visit

Insurance Information

We accept most major insurance plans. Please give us a call even if you believe your provider does not extend coverage for our office, we will try to work with the insurance company to get you approved.


Please call the office to make an appointment in advance. If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call us as far in advance as possible so we may use that time to see another patient in need of care. We make a sincere effort to adhere to our appointment schedule and appreciate your patience if we are late due to emergencies or hospital surgery.

One Appointment — All The Specialists

Dr. Hoernschemeyer and his team would like to make appointments and surgeries convenient and simpler. Meet with all the specialists necessary during one appointment and have surgery the next day.

Call the office to make arrangements for a Thursday to see Dr. Hoernschemeyer and either Dr. Kuhns for spine specialties or Dr. Aleto for hip specialties. One appointment with all specialists to save time for the your family. Additional studies can be ordered then surgery will be planned for the next day on Friday.

Fees & Payments

We make every effort to decrease the cost of your medical care. Therefore, we request payment arrangements for all office services at the time they are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made. We accept cash, checks, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover for your convenience. If we are a participating provider of your insurance company, we will bill them. However, payment is the patient's responsibility. We will help in any way we can to assist you in handling claims. We do require your copay be paid at the time of your visit. If you are a self pay patient, we require you to pay $132 at the time of your visit.
