We are pleased that you have chosen our practice for your medical services. This policy is intended to briefly explain our billing and payment options.
Billing for Services
Our registration staff will ask you to verify your insurance, address and email information at each of your office visits.
For most insurance companies, we will submit bills directly to your insurance company for payment. You will be notified if we are unable to submit bills to your insurance company. In this case, you will be supplied with all billing information required for you to submit your own claim and payment in full will be requested from you at the time of service.
Any questions regarding your billing, please contact our billing service agent at our toll free number: (855) 206-9963.
Collection of Co-Payments and Payment of your Bill
Payment of all known deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance (percentage plans) and non-covered services will be requested at the time service is rendered.
Patients without insurance will be asked for payment in full when service is provided.
If you are unable to make payment of any required co-payment, your appointment will be rescheduled.
Regardless of the type of insurance coverage, patients are ultimately responsible for payment of their medical bills.
Payment Options for Our Valued Patients
We accept cash, checks, credit or debit cards (Visa, Mastercard and American Express) as a convenience to our patients.
There is a $25.00 return check fee for all checks return for insufficient funds.
Past Due Balances
We ask that all previously unpaid balances be pain prior to your next visit. If you are unable to make payment to clear past due balances, your appointment may be rescheduled.
