The Office Visit
You will be asked to show your insurance card at each visit and verify your address and phone number. You may also be asked to complete medical history and/or patient information forms. Please bring a list of your medications and dosages (including over-the-counter medications) to every physician visit.
You are required to pay your co-pay, deductibles, and any previous balances when services are rendered. You may use your personal check, cash, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Visa, or debit card.
We participate in most insurance plans, including Medicare. If you are not insured with a plan that we are contracted with, or if you do not have health insurance, you will be required to pay in full for your services at the time of visit. We will then apply a 20% discount for that visit.
If your visit is due to an accident or injury, please let us know at the time of the visit.
We will submit your claims and assist you in any way we reasonably can to help get your claims paid. Please be aware that the balance of your claim is your responsibility whether or not your insurance company pays your claim. If your insurance changes, please notify us before your next visit so that we can make the appropriate changes to help you receive your maximum benefits.
You will receive a statement from us once a month informing you of any balance due. Please verify the correct services were billed. Payment is expected within 30 days of the time of service. Payments can also be made on online. If you have any questions or need to make payment arrangements, please call our Business Office. Delinquent payment of services could result in termination of the patient/physician relationship and/or having your account sent to a collection agency.
If we receive a returned check, a collection effort will be made to the responsible party or to the financial institution listed on the check. A returned check fee of $30 will be added to your account.
You may be asked to talk to the Business Office prior to making your appointment if we have questions regarding your account.
Refunds will be made on a regular basis for accounts that have been overpaid.
We are required to inform patients of those services outside of Medicare coverage. You will be asked to sign the ABN (Advance Beneficiary Notice) if your physician orders any lab tests and/or services that Medicare does not cover. This may be due to a specific time requirement and/or diagnosis.
Please call our Billing Office at 785-242-1620, press 2.
