All services performed at the hospital and/or in our office will be submitted to your insurance company whether or not we participate in your particular plan. While filing insurance claims is a courtesy we extend to our patients, we must emphasize that as physicians, our relationship is with you. Your health insurance coverage is an agreement between you and your insurance company. All charges are strictly your responsibility from the date services are rendered.
All insurance companies have a schedule of fees from which they will pay; however, the doctor’s fee may be different than what the insurance company shows on their schedule. Therefore, any balance not covered by the insurance company, including but not limited to co-payments, deductibles, and co-insurance, remains the responsibility of the patient.
Payment For Services Performed
Patient statements are sent out once we have settled with your insurance company (typically 30-60 days from the date of service). Full payment is due within 30 days of the statement date unless prior arrangements have been made in writing with our Billing Department.
