Payment for Services
We recognize the need for a clear understanding between you and our office regarding payment for services. Charges for professional services and treatment depend upon your diagnosis and the terms of your insurance contract. Co-payment and unmet annual deductibles are payable at the time of your visit. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.
Please notify us immediately if there are any changes in your coverage, employer or insurance company. When a change occurs, we will verify the new coverage and do our best to ensure a smooth transition. If we are unable to verify your insurance benefits you will be required to pay for services rendered. We will bill your insurance and refund you if / when payment is received from the insurance company.
Referrals and Pre-Certifications
Your insurance may require a referral from your physician in order for you to see a specialist. Your insurance may also require pre-certification of office or outpatient services. As a courtesy, our office will make every reasonable effort to obtain these referrals and pre-certifications for you.
