Please familiarize yourself with the policies and benefits of your insurance plan prior to your visit including your deductible amount and/or co-payment for your plan. We will file a claim to your primary insurance carrier and secondary carrier, if applicable, when the information has been provided. You should notify the office immediately regarding any changes in your insurance carrier or plan.

Managed Care:
Managed care plans have strict requirements. Please verify the physician’s participation and authorization requirements with your managed care plan prior to your visit by contacting your insurance’s customer service department. It is impossible to know every insurance plan for every patient; therefore, it is your responsibility to know of any restrictions or requirements for your plan. Failure to receive correct verifications or authorization may result in insurance denying coverage, in which case you will be responsible for payment of services rendered.

Medicare:
Our providers participate in the Medicare program. Medicare pays our providers directly 80% of the approved charges. The patient is responsible for payment of the annual deductible and the 20% copayment as determined by Medicare.

Commercial Insurance:
For commercial insurance plans or plans which we do not participate with, we request payment in full on your visit date. We will file your claim and instruct the carrier to mail reimbursement directly to you.
