Payment is due at the time of service unless arrangements have been made in advance by your insurance carrier. We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Flex Spending and most managed health care accounts.
Keep in mind that your insurance policy is basically a contract between you and your insurance company. As a service to you, we will file your insurance claim if you assign the benefits to the doctor – in other words, if you agree to have your insurance company pay the doctor directly. If your insurance company does not pay the practice within a reasonable period, we will have to look to you for payment. If we later receive a check from your insurer, we will refund any overpayment to you.
We have made prior arrangements with many insurance companies and other health plans to accept an assignment of benefits. We will bill them, and you are required to pay a co=payment at the time of your visit.
If you are insured by a plan that we do not have a prior arrangement with, we will prepare and send the claim for you on an unassigned basis. This means the insurer will send the payment directly to you. Therefore, our charges for your care are due at the time of service.
Not all insurance plans cover all services. In the event your insurance plan determines a service to be “not covered,” you will be responsible for the complete charge. Payment is due upon receipt of a statement from our office.
We will bill your insurance company for all services provided in the hospital. You are responsible for any balance due.
