If you are covered by an insurance plan, please present your current insurance card(s) to the receptionist at the time of your first visit. If your insurance changes at any time, you must present the new card(s) to the receptionist at your next visit after the change. Our staff must have current information in order to process your claims. Because of the numerous insurance plans available, we will not be able to answer specific questions regarding your plan. Please contact your insurance company for plan specific information.
If you are not covered under an insurance plan, we will provide assistance to you by making arrangements for payment that will fit your individual circumstances. You may call our office for an estimated amount of service costs prior to your visit. Payment will be due at the time of service. We accept check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
1. It is your responsibility to check with your insurance company prior to your first visit to determine if we are a participating physician with your insurance plan. Medicare Standard does not require a referral. HMO’s such as Premier Blue, Coventry, Blue Select, and others do require a referral.
2. If your insurance plan requires you to have a referral from your primary physician, you are responsible for contacting your physician before each visit to our office. Please ask your physician to fax or mail a copy of the referral to our office prior to your visit. If you do not have an authorized referral, we will not refuse you care. However, our office and your insurance company recognize that without a referral, you are responsible for any charges related to services provided. We will bill you directly for charges not covered by a referral.
3. If your insurance plan requires a co-payment for your office visit, you will be expected to pay the co-pay amount at the time services are provided. You will be billed for any portion of services not covered by your insurance plan and for deductibles that are a part of your insurance plan. For your convenience, check, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted.
Our staff is committed to assisting you. If you have any questions, please ask.
