In our practice, we expect payment at the time of service for patients who have no insurance coverage. If you are covered by an insurance plan, we expect co-payments required by your plan to be paid when you register for your appointment. We offer you the courtesy of submitting charges to your primary and secondary insurance plans; and we expect that any remaining balance due will be paid in a timely manner, certainly within 30 days. If you have additional plans, we will provide you with the papers necessary to send claims to them.
For our patients who have no insurance, please ask about our discount policy at the front desk.
In order to make it easier for you, we accept cash, checks, money orders, VISA, Discover, American Express or Master Card for payment. All may be given as payment at the front desk or sent with your statement for payment of your balance.
We send monthly statements to inform you of any balance due, and we will also remind you of money due when you call to schedule an appointment and when we call to confirm appointments. We expect that patient due balances will be paid upon receipt of our statement or at your next visit. If it becomes necessary to place your account with a collection agency, all costs of this process will be your responsibility.
While our billing professionals will do all they can to help you in communicating and negotiating with your insurance plan, we must inform you that any balance remaining on your account that is 60 days old will be considered your responsibility and billed to you.
Should there be an issue with your ability to pay, we encourage you to call our office and schedule a consultation appointment with our financial advisor, who can help arrange a payment plan for your balance due.
