We are committed to providing you with the best possible care. If you have medical insurance, we wish to help you receive your maximum allowable benefits. To achieve this, we need your understanding of and assistance with our financial and payment policy.
Payment is required at the time of service. We accept cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover).
For patients with no insurance, full payment is required at the time of service.
For patients with HMO plans through one of our contracted IPA plans, the co-payment is required at the time of service. The amount of co-payment varies with different plans. You are responsible for knowing the co-payment amount.
For patients with PPO plans, payment is required at the time of service until the new year’s deductible has been met. After that, we require co-payments or your liability to be paid at the time of service.
While the filing of insurance claims is a courtesy that we extend to our patients, all charges not covered by your insurance company are your responsibility.
Bills that are over 90 days past due will be turned over to a collection agency unless other arrangements have been made. Accounts that are turned over to collections may result in dismissal from the practice.
If special circumstances make immediate payment impossible, payment arrangements must be approved in advance by our business office staff.
Unless canceled at least 24 hours in advance, there will be a charge for missed appointments. Please help us serve you better by keeping scheduled appointments. Multiple missed appointments may result in dismissal from the practice.
It is the patient’s responsibility to notify the clinic of any insurance changes. A photocopy of the patient’s current insurance card will be kept on file to ensure prompt and accurate filing.
