Please bring all pertinent insurance information and your insurance cards with you on each visit to our office. We recommend you bring your preferred method of payment (credit card, check or cash) to pay for deductibles or co-pays. Your co-pay or deductible must be paid at the time of service.
Our office files your insurance as a courtesy. We recommend that you review and understand your insurance policy. Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. It is not a contract between you and our doctors.
Should your insurance carrier withhold payment or partial payment of your claim for any reason, we will be glad to assist you in obtaining an explanation from them. However, we cannot guarantee payment of your claim. Also, we cannot be responsible for negotiating fees or claims with insurance companies or any other entity. Patients are responsible for payment of medical care within a reasonable time, regardless of the status of the claim.
If pre-authorization is needed, then it is your responsibility to notify our staff so we may obtain authorization. If no authorizations are on file, we cannot provide the services unless you decide to pay for visit at self-pay rate. Patient balances are expected to be paid in full. We do not have payment plans for outstanding balances. Partial balance payments through the mail will not be accepted.
If you have any questions or are not prepared to pay for your appointment, please notify one of our staff prior to your appointment. If you are unable to pay for residual balances from previous dates of services, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment.
There is a $50.00 fee for missed appointments (unless a 24-hour notice is given) or more than 15 minutes late arrival. Please note, however, that you will be charged $200.00 for missing a nuclear stress test if you do not call to cancel your appointment 24 hours prior to the test.
There is a $25.00 fee for returned checks.
There is a $25.00 for printing medical records (first 100 pages then an additional 30 cents/per page).
There is a placement fee of $30.00 in addition to the balance subject to collection.
