Important information for patients covered by Aetna or Coventry

First Choice Neurology is proud to announce that all of its providers have earned the maximum score in quality from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services thru Merit Based Incentive Program (MIPS). We work hard every day to be your choice for care.

Unfortunately, First Choice Neurology (formerly Neuroscience Consultants) contract for Coventry Health Plan was terminated by Aetna the parent company with an effective date of 5/31/2018. We want to be able to provide uninterrupted neurology and pain management services to you. This means that First Choice Neurology 92 providers serving 5 counties in Florida and 36 different hospitals will no longer be able to provide services in our office, but more importantly all services provided in the hospital will be based on your out-of-network benefits in case of any emergency services.

If you would like to be certain that you will be able to continue treatment with your FirstChoice neurologist or if you would like to see one of the other 92 First Choice Neurology providers, youcan do so by enrolling in an insurance plan through one of the insurance companies listed here:

  • AvMed
  • Care Plus
  • Cigna
  • First Health/MultiPlan/PHCS
  • Humana
  • Medicare
  • Neighborhood Health Plan
  • Simply Healthcare
  • United Healthcare

If you are considering changing your medical insurance coverage, please call our office first to verify we are able to provide you with uninterrupted service.

These plans, and a list of our neurologists by location, can be found on First Choice Neurology’s website.
