We participate with many major insurance companies in addition to Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plans. Always bring your insurance identification card(s) to your appointment. Purposefully withholding insurance information is fraudulent. Please be sure to notify us of any changes to your insurance or personal information.
Your provider will make decisions for your care based on the best treatment for you, not necessarily based on the coverage of your insurance plan. It is your responsibility to know what services are covered by your insurance. This includes laboratory tests, preventive services, prescriptions and deductible and co-payment amounts. Please be sure to tell your provider if you have insurance/ financial concerns. Although health insurance is intended to help patients meet the cost of medical service, financial responsibility rests with you. Co-payments are due at the time of service. In addition to the regular office visit charge, there may be an additional charge for services provided during regularly scheduled evening or weekend hours and during hours when the office is closed.
For insurances we do not participate with, the patient is responsible for payment at the time of service. A detailed receipt will be given for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement.
In the event of circumstances that prevent immediate payment of bills, we will work with you to create a payment plan.
For patients who have chosen an insurance that requires prior approval, we request four working days to prepare referrals and request authorizations. Remember ALL referrals must be completed prior to appointments with a specialist.
