Payment and Insurance
As a result of the Affordable Care Act there have been many changes in insurance plans and coverage. Please check with your insurance carrier about coverage for office visits and to verify that we participate with your plan. A list of insurances we normally participate with is listed on our Welcome page.
Bring all insurance forms and cards to your appointment and be sure to notify the staff of all insurance changes when signing in for your visit.
All copays, outstanding balances and non-covered services are due at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made. Each insurance carrier has multiple plans, and the details of each is different so we may not have the specifics for your plan. Your insurance coverage represents a contract between you and your insurance carrier.
More and more insurances require patients to contribute to the cost of their health care in the form of deductibles, copays and co-insurance. We do not control the amount you are required to contribute. These are set by the terms of your contract you or your employer signed with your insurance carrier. Any amounts we bill to you represents your obligation under that contract.
We are required to collect all copays, coinsurance and deductibles as participating physicians. If a bill presents a financial difficulty please speak with your doctor or our Office Manager. We do our best to work with our patients and may be able to develop a personal payment arrangement for you. For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, Debit Cards, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover for payment.
