**If you are a Wheaton or Allen Hospital employee (and your insurance is through them) we can see you but it would be out of network benefits in most cases.**
Note: There are thousands of independent insurance plans available. Call us to verify. We may be in network with your insurance even though it is not listed here. We also recommend that you call the number on your insurance card to verify participation before starting treatment due to the integration of plans and because plans vary in different parts of the country. We can help you navigate insurance, but it is ultimately your responsibility to your benefits.
