Insurance and Managed Care Plans

Vanguard Rheumatology Partners is an in-network provider for many insurance plans. For more information regarding the plans in which we participate please visit our Insurance and Managed Care Plans page.

Registration Form and Medical Records

In addition to bringing your insurance and demographic information, please also bring with you any medical records pertaining to the problem you would like evaluated by our physicians, such as doctors’ notes, laboratory test reports, and results of imaging studies. We encourage patients to bring X-ray films or digitized images on CD-ROM (in addition to their printed interpretive report) for our rheumatologists to review. First-hand review of images is often more valuable than simply reading an interpretive report.

In order to streamline the registration process, we kindly request that you complete our Registration Form, available on our Forms web page.


As a courtesy to the doctors and other patients who are in need of our services, PLEASE call us if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment. Patients who do not show up, or cancel/reschedule without providing 24 hour notice will be charged $25.00.
