Insurance Network

DPNS is in-network with the following list of provider networks.

Please note we have seen an increase in policies that limit members to a narrower network of providers. We highly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that DPNS is in-network with your specific coverage prior to scheduling. When speaking with your insurance company, keep in mind that our office is not affiliated with NorthShore University Health Systems.

Our office does not participate with any medical assistance policies such as Medicaid plans. In addition, all HMOs policies except Northshore BCBS Precision HMO will require a referral from your primary care physician.
