Insurance Update

Dear Patient,

Effective April 1, 2021, Texas Orthopaedic Associates will be under a new tax identification number due to us becoming part of OrthoLoneStar. OrthoLoneStar was created through a merger of six orthopaedic practices in Houston, Austin, Dallas, and Tyler.

You may have received a letter from your insurance carrier telling you that Texas Orthopaedic Associates physicians are out of network and that you need to choose a new physician if you want in-network benefits. You do not need to choose a new physician.  Please be assured that we remain contracted with all the same insurance carriers and that we are working through the administrative issue of the insurance carriers updating our new tax identification number in their system.

The physicians of TOA thank you for your patience as we go through this transition period. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your physician’s office.
