Insurance Plans

Covering the Care We Provide

*We accept nearly every insurance in the state of Arizona (except Cigna). Please see our comprehensive lists below.

*Please note that we are NOT currently accepting new patients with the following insurances: Blue Cross Medicare Advantage and Cigna Medicare Advantage (including Cigna Healthsprings).  We are still accepting new patients with all other insurances below. For any/all AHCCCS plans (including Mercy Care and UHC Community plans) and Humana Medicare Advantage (including Humana Gold HMO and Humana Gold Plus), only Dr. Arbuckle is accepting new patients at the Surprise Health Center location.

*If you have no insurance or a very high deductible, we will work with

you to make sure your care is as affordable as possible

*Same-Day Appointments Available if Insurance Doesn't Require a Referral from PCP

**Note, we accept ALL secondary insurances as long as we accept the primary insurance


 Medicare and Medicare Advantage

Foot & Ankle Specialists of Arizona accepts Medicare and all Medicare Advantage/Replacement plans.  If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan (UHC AARP/Walgreens/OptumCare, Cigna Senior/Healthsprings, BCBS Medicare Advanatage, Humana Gold, Aetna Medicare Advantage, Well Care Medicare Advantage, Allwell Advantage, Mercy Care Advantage, etc), give us a call and we'll work out the details!


Blue Cross, United Healthcare, Humana, UMR, and Aetna

We accept nearly all patients with any form of coverage with these commerical plans (including all Blue Cross plans regardless of which state they're from). Get in touch with our office to learn more. Cigna is the only exception to this: we do not accept any commercial nor Medicare Cigna plans.



Patients with Tricare plans are covered in our office and Dr. Gillespie has extensive history of treating our military and their dependents (see his bio in our "The Team" page). Call our office to find out more details and which benefits you’re eligible for.


AHCCCS/Medicaid Plans

Arizona Medicaid (AHCCCS) offers some of the most comprehensive health insurance plans available. We accept patients with most forms of this coverage (UHC Coimmunity Plan, Mercy Care, Care 1st, AZ Complete AHCCCS, and more!). Get in touch with our office to learn more.  The only AHCCCS plan we don't currently accept is the Banner - University Family/AHCCCS Plan.


AZ Complete Care and Exchange Plans

Foot & Ankle Specialists of Arizona accepts the exchange plans (Ambetter, Allwell, AHCCCS, and other AZ Complete Health Plans).  These plans change a bit from year-to-year, so please call us to verify if we take your plan this year.
