Insurance & Payment Information
We are participating providers for Medicare and most other major insurance plans. It is the responsibility of each patient to be familiar with the specifics of their particular policy and to obtain referrals or authorization (prior to your appointment with us) if your insurance requires one to see a specialist.
Your co-pay and any deductible amounts are due on the date of service/date that you are seen. We do not bill you for your co-pay and we ask that you come prepared to pay your co-pay on every visit. Once your insurance pays on your claims, you are responsible for any unpaid balance not covered or applied to your deductible.
It is the patient’s responsibility to follow up with your insurance company to ensure that they pay in a timely manner. It is our office policy to bill the insurance balance to the patient after 90 days and after several attempts to obtain payment from the insurance company. It is also your responsibility to keep us informed whenever your insurance changes or there is a change in your coverage
If you have any other questions regarding our office insurance policy, please feel free to contact our billing department.
