insurance information

We wish to inform you in advance of our financial policies.  Patients are responsible for knowing their own insurance coverage, presenting their medical insurance card, valid photo ID and paying their co-pay before being seen.  Your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company, and our goal is to assist you to the best of our ability using the information provided to us.  You are responsible for giving us current, accurate and complete information before receiving services. Insurance companies only allow a small window of time in which to bill, so we need to have the right information on the first claim submission.

Regardless of insurance coverage, you are financially responsible for services rendered.  Although we try to verify eligibility, insurance companies will not guarantee payment, coverage, or benefits and so we do not know what will (or will not) actually be paid by them until we receive the explanation of benefits that usually accompanies insurance payment or denial.  Payment is expected at the time of service for all procedures unless prior arrangements are made.  As with any other business, it is necessary for us to receive payment for our services to ensure we can continue to provide services.

Payments may be made by cash, check, Visa or MasterCard.
