Advocate Dreyer Strengthens Ties to Advocate Medical Group

New name outside, same great care inside

AURORA - Advocate Dreyer will begin to be branded as Advocate Medical Group (AMG) on January 1, 2017. Dreyer has been affiliated with Advocate since 1996. Over the years that relationship has evolved – most recently represented by the transition in name from ‘Dreyer Medical Clinic’ to ‘Advocate Dreyer’ in 2014.

AMG is a physician-led and governed group comprised of approximately 1,500 clinicians representing more than 50 specialties. It is the largest physician group in Illinois, with more than 300 primary care and specialty outpatient sites throughout Chicagoland and Bloomington-Normal.

Notes about insurance:

The Clinic is selective about the insurance companies with which it contracts to provide services. Managed care insurers typically cover preventive screenings that meet or exceed nationally accepted standards of practice. Some plans cover education expenses.

Today, most health plans require patients to pay for a portion of the services they receive. If your insurance requires copayments, please remember that these are due at the time of service.

The Dreyer Managed Care Department can help patients with many insurance and managed care questions, and can also submit health insurance claims on behalf of patients. They can be reached at 630-859-0400.
