Paying for care today is a complex and sometimes overwhelming process. To facilitate this process it is important that the patient, spouse, parent or other responsible party be prepared by making available the information necessary to file a claim on your behalf.
You must present your insurance cards and any referral forms required by your insurance company at the time of your appointment. If your insurance company has certain requirements that you do not follow they will make you responsible for the bill. If we participate with your insurance company we will submit your claim. Please ask the staff at the front desk to update your insurance information whenever you are in the office.
If we do not participate with your insurance we will provide you with an itemized statement for you to submit or we can submit a claim on your behalf – but remember that the insurance company may not pay the claim and you will be responsible for the bill.
If you are injured at work or through an employment activity you MUST bring the required referral from your employer to your appointment so that we can validate the payment source prior to being seen.
- Please provide the Name, address, and phone number of your Workers Compensation Insurance Carrier / Company
- Claim number and name of Workers Compensation Case Manager assigned to your case - if known.
Failure to do so may result in your employer or Workers Compensation Carrier denying your claim. You and your employers cooperation is the key to timely submission and handling of your claim.
As a participating provider with Medicare we are pleased to submit your Medicare claim and any secondary insurance claim forms for you.
We recognize the burden that having to pay for your own care can place on the patient. That is why we utilize the reimbursement schedule utilized by Blue Cross / Blue Shield when charging our self-pay patients.
However we also require that the services provided be paid for at the time of service. We will consider payment schedules but in the event the patient fails to honor the payment schedule the fee for services provided will revert back to the full charge allowed by law.
CO-PAYS & DEDUCTIBLES
Medicare and all other insurance carriers require that we collect the co-payments and deductibles as outlined in your insurance policy. It is our policy to collect these charges at the time of service.
