Need an Insurance Option for Teenagers?
Dr. hipke Accepts over 50 Insurances!

Health insurance options for teens and tweens are rapidly changing.  Dr. Hipke will work with you every step of the way!

And...he has an 'insurance option for teenagers' with NO insurance!  That's right, while he is required by federal law to file on insurance if you have it, he also has a very generous cash discount system for teens without insurance. He can also see teens for FREE!

An Insurance Option for Teenagers...Commercial

The insurance networks constantly change.  If you have insurance, he recommends starting with your insurance network website to search for Dr. Hipke.

You may have to look under Internal Medicine, Adolescent Medicine or Pediatrics.  (Yes, some insurances have no understanding of Adolescent Medicine so they just stick him under the closest fit to the way they see it.)

A note about 'Doctor Statistics':  The insurances now 'grade' doctors based on what they consider is good performance.  You will find Dr. Hipke is rated low by several insurances because he is compared to 'normal' pediatric or Internal Medicine clinics.  That makes Dr. Hipke automatically unacceptable because there is NO ONE in East Texas with similar patient statistics.  (Take the 'rating' with a grain of salt.)  Click here to read what Dr. Hipke's patients think his rating should be...
