Camino Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic endeavors to have all of its providers in-network with all locally available insurance plans; although this isn’t always possible. Additionally, we strive to meet the most stringent quality and efficiency standards established by CMS and most insurance carriers and are proud to say that we have received special designation status from all major carriers for the quality of our care. The list of insurance carriers we accept below is not exhaustive – there are many other PPOs that we accept. Please check with your insurance company to see if we are in-network and only call us if your insurance company informs you that we are not a network provider. Letting us know allows us to reach out to your carrier and pursue in-network status if possible.
If you have additional billing questions, please contact BASS Medical Group at (925) 627-3424.
Dr. Murray accepts CCS patients for the Children’s Hospital of Oakland Cochlear Implant Program. These patients can be seen at both the CHO clinic and here in our San Jose and Morgan Hill clinics. We are not able to see other Medi-Cal and or QBM (Qualified Medicare Beneficiaries) patients at any of our locations as we are not in-network. We are also unable to accept Medi-Cal or QBM as a secondary payer on other plans. Therefore, if you have either Medi-Cal or QBM, we are unable to see you as a patient.
