Patient Financial Responsibilities
• The patient (or patient’s guardian, if a minor) is ultimately responsible for the payment for treatment of care
• If your insurance requires a referral, it is the patient’s responsibility to obtain the referral and present at their office visit. If a visit/procedure is denied due to no referral, the patient is responsible for payment.
• We will bill your insurance for you. However, the patient is required to provide the most correct and updated information regarding insurance.
• Patients are responsible for payment of co-pays, co-insurance, deductibles and all other procedures or treatment not covered by their insurance plan
• Co-pays are due at the time of service
• Co-insurance, deductibles and non-covered services are due 30 days from receipt of billing statement.
• Patients may incur, and are responsible for payment of additional charges, if applicable. These charges may include:
o Returned Checks Charge - $20.00
o No Show Fee - $50 Office visit and procedures
We are aware that emergencies occur, but it is your responsibility to notify our office 24-48 hours that you will not be able to keep your office/procedure appointment.
