It has been my experience that providers of health care are not obligated to accept secondary or even primary insurnace coverages if they are not under contract with that insurance company. I believe they are free to accept no insurance coverage at all and demand "cash" up front if they so desire. This would leave it your responsibility to sent the bill to your insurance(s) carrier(s) and get direct payment assuming they cover out of panel care. Some providers can not refuse you care even if you had no insurance but you would be responsible for the cost of care.
