BILLING & INSURANCE

BILLING

Billing (payment) for services are normally due at the time of the visit unless other arrangements have been made. We accept most PPO and HMO insurances ( see below ). We ask that patients take care of their portion of what the insurance company does not pay at the time of treatment.


Our office financial policy is to bill patients for all services rendered. We appreciate payment at the time of the visit. If this is not possible, we will arrange to mail you a monthly statement. Payment for all balances are due within fifteen days after receiving the financial statement. We accept cash, checks, or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover). Please discuss any special needs in the handling of your account with the office’s financial department prior to the treatment appointment.

We do file insurance electronically.

Please check to see if your insurance plan requires a referral for your visit to our office. It is the patient’s responsibility to obtain a referral before each visit if needed. Otherwise, if you do not have your referral, you will be responsible for the portion of the bill that your insurance does not cover.If you require surgery, our office personnel will make all arrangements including obtaining pre-certification from your insurance company.

INSURANCE COMPANIES

Please check with your health insurance plan to be sure that the doctor you want to see is covered under your particular insurance plan.
