We participate with most insurance plans. If you are not insured, payment for services is required in full at each visit. We will submit your claim(s) to your insurance company and assist you in any way we can to expedite the processing of your claim. Please be aware that at times your insurance company may request certain information directly from you in order to process your claim. It is your responsibility to comply with their request. Please notify our office immediately should you have any changes to your insurance information. You may be responsible for the claim(s) should you fail to provide the current insurance information in a timely manner. If your insurance company does not process your claim in 60 days, the balance of the claim(s) will automatically be billed to you.
Co-payments and Deductibles
All co-payments and deductibles must be paid at the time of service as part of your contract with your insurance company. Payment in full is required at the time of service for any past due balance on your account. Any check returned for insufficient funds will be subject to a $25.00 service charge. Please be aware that if an unpaid balance remains on your account and is over 90 days past due, we may refer your account to a collection agency.
Our policy is to charge for missed appointments as this may prevent another patient from their treatment. However, we understand that there are times when you must miss an appointment due to prior obligations or an unseen emergency. We ask that you notify our office within 24 hours of your scheduled appointment so that we may assist you. If you are unable to reach our office during business hours, please leave a message on our voice mail. .
We realize that temporary financial situations may affect timely payment on your account. We encourage you to contact our billing department within our office and we will gladly work out payment arrangements on your account. .
