Although we are contracted with several insurance companies, it is your responsibility to make sure that our physician is in your plan. It is also your responsibility to know your insurance benefits.
Health care often changes on a daily basis, therefore we cannot be responsible for knowing the details of your health care plan. You are ultimately responsible for the payment of services rendered to you by this office, so be informed by familiarizing yourself with the coverage details of your plan. If your care requires special consideration, please discuss this with our billing office prior to your appointment.
As a courtesy to our patients we will file primary insurance forms from our office. We do not file secondary insurance except for Medicare Recipients. In order to do this we will require information from you. We will need all your demographic and insurance information prior to your appointment. We will also request an update on this information approximately every six months thereafter. We ask that at the time of your appointment you bring your insurance card and a photo ID as well as any other forms that will assist in making sure that your claim is filed correctly.
At the time of service you will be responsible for all fees that are not covered by your insurance, including co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles and non-covered services or items received. The co-pay cannot be waived by our practice, as it is a requirement placed on you by your insurance carrier. We strive to be as accurate as possible in calculating your responsibility but, with so many variations in policies and fee schedules, we are not always exact.
You may receive a statement from our office for any balance due. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover), and money orders. Payments are also accepted by phone.
