What does GMS stand for?GMS stands for "Gabriella Marie Smith," my sister - in - law, who we lost unexpectedly in May of 2021. She was a big believer in equal access to healthcare for all. Prior to her passing, she inspired me to start this business. We hope to carry on her legacy and keep her memory alive.
Do you accept insurance?Yes, we accept Medicare Part B. Medicare Advantage Plans: We can work with Medicare Advantage Plans out of network.
