Insurance

We have made prior arrangements with some insurers and health plans. For these plans, for which we “accept assignment,” we submit all insurance claims for our patients and bill those plans directly. If you have insurance with a different carrier, we can still prepare and submit the claim for you at no charge on an “unassigned” basis.

Different insurance plans have different definitions of what is covered. Please be aware of the limits and conditions of your own policy! In the event your health plan determines a service to be “not covered,” you will be responsible for the fee. In that event we will bill you, and payment is due upon receipt of that statement.

We cannot accept any insurance that cannot be verified. Please bring proof of insurance to each and every office visit! If you don’t, we will have to bill you directly until you can provide proof of insurance.

Due to insurance rules, all required co-payments must be collected at the time you arrive for the appointment. Any other arrangements must be made in advance with our Office Manager. We accept cash, check, and credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, and American Express).

For all services rendered to minors, the adult accompanying the patient is responsible for payment, whether a parent/legal guardian or not. If your child will be brought to the appointment by his babysitter, grandma, etc., be sure he or she is aware of this policy.

Please contact our Office Manager if you have a question about insurance or billing matters.
