To Our Managed Care Patients
What You Should Know About Your Insurance Before You Visit Our Office
As a courtesy to our patients, our office attempts to verify your insurance coverage prior to your office visit. Unfortunately, the information we receive from your insurance company is minimal and is not a guarantee for coverage or benefits, but rather a quote based on current eligibiity.
In general, we are not given specifics of your coverage; for example, what prcedures you're insurance does/does not cover. We verify eligibility, co-insurance and copay amounts only. If you elect to have a procedure performed at a future date, our office will verify benefits prior to the procedure.
We encourage all patients to "know" their insurance policy. It is important to have this information because you are responsible for paying all charges associated with your care which the insurance does not cover at the time of service. Knowing what your plan does/does not cover will provide you with the knowledge to make medical decisions and know your options.
Please be sure to bring your insurance card with you on each visit. You will also need to bring your driver's license/photo id and method of payment for your co-insurance/copay.
Pleae feel free to contact our office if you have additional questions prior to your appointment. Thank you for helping us make your visit more enjoyable!
We are committed to providing you with the best possible healthcare. In order to achieve this, we need your assistance and your understanding of our payment policies. Payment for services not covered by your insurance plan and any out of pocket expenses are due at the time of service. We accept cash, debit cards, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
We must emphasize that as a medical care provider, our relationship is with you, not your insurance company. While the filing of insurance claims is a courtesy that we extend to our patients, all charges are your responsibility from the date services are rendered. It is understood that temporary financial problems arise; you are encouraged to contact us promplty for assistance in the management of your account.
