YOUR FIRST VISIT AT HUDSON ALLERGY
We are excited to meet you and become your NYC allergist. We want to make sure that your experience at Hudson Allergy is nothing short of excellent. Here’s a bit of helpful information to get you ready for your first visit at our New York City Allergy practice.
ALLERGY PATIENT INSURANCE GUIDE
We accept many insurance policies and are in network with most popular plans offered by NYC employers.
Below please find the providers we accept.
- Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield
- Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield
- United Health Insurance
As a courtesy we review each patient’s insurance policy with them in advance of their meeting with the doctor. We want each patient to understand the potential out of pocket costs associated with their visit so there are no surprises.
Before the visit, it is the patient’s responsibility to consult their insurance provider, to be clear on what is covered by their insurance policy, and to understand how visiting an allergist factors into any deductible and coverage costs.
To help you uncover this information from your insurance provider, please review this ALLERGY PATIENT INSURANCE GUIDE.
Please contact us if you have questions or would like a list of specific policies we accept.

It is the goal of Hudson Allergy to provide patients with excellent medical care, on their schedule, in a timely and efficient manner.
We are considerate towards all of our patients’ and staff’s time, and we aim to mitigate late cancellations and missed appointments, which disrupt the flow of our office.
Hudson Allergy retains the right to charge a $100 fee for any cancellation that occurs with less than 24 hours notice or a ‘no-show’ who misses an appointment entirely without forewarning. The individual will be responsible for the payment of this fee and it will not be billed to, nor paid by, the insurance company.
A fee of $100 will be charged to a credit card of the patient’s choosing after the patient has cancelled/rescheduled or failed to show up to an appointment with no notification (“no show”) at least 24 hours prior to their appointment time.
Employees of Hudson Allergy must collect and charge the fee of $100 if/when the patient is requesting another appointment within the office.
The $100 fee will be refunded to the original method of payment once the patient has checked in and has been seen by the doctor on the date of his/her appointment.
If a patient has been seen in the office, then schedules a follow up and is unable to make it to the follow up appointment, the appointment can be cancelled (abiding by the 24 hour notice policy) without a fee being assessed to the patientt’s account, up to two (2) times. After two missed appointments/cancellations, or appointment reschedulings a $100 fee will be charged to the patient’s card.
If a patient cancels/reschedules or does not show up to a scheduled appointment, three (3) or more times consecutively, a fee of $100 will be charged for each cancellation, no show or rescheduling that is within less than a 24 hour period.
Please do not cancel your appointment unless it is absolutely necessary. Your well being is a top priority and we look forward to your next visit.
All the best,
