Forms & Policies | Billing & Insurance

 

We accept Medicare and most commercial insurances. Our office will help in filing the necessary insurance information, but your involvement is often helpful and essential. Your insurance may pay all, some, or none of your bill.

At the time of your visit, you need to provide our office with the correct insurance information, including your insurance card to be copied. We ask that all co-insurance and deductibles be paid at the time the service is performed. We will perform courtesy billing for you, provided you have given us all pertinent billing information.

Your insurance coverage is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Financial responsibility rests with the patient for deductibles, co-insurance and non-covered services. We accept cash, check and payment with Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.

You may receive a separate bill for pathology, labs, anesthesia and x-rays. When procedures are performed, a biopsy specimen may be sent to a lab to be analyzed. The fee for this is a separate charge from your office services. Your payment for this lab service should be sent directly to the lab.

Contact us with any insurance or billing questions or concerns as our staff is eager to address them promptly so you can focus on your healthcare.

Pre-Certification

If your insurance policy requires pre-certification before any procedure or hospitalization, please notify our office several days prior to your visit or admission, so that pre-certification can be obtained.  If pre-certification or authorization is required and not obtained, it is the patient’s responsibility to pay for the cost of the procedure and any other costs of their care.
