  1. Insurance. We participate in most insurance plans but it is the patient's responsibility to verify participation. If you are not insured by an insurance plan that we participate with, payment in full is due at the time of service. If you are insured by a plan we participate with but you do not have a valid insurance card present, payment in full is required. If your insurance changes, please notify us before your next visit so we can update your records. We will need to copy your updated insurance card too. Knowing your insurance benefits is your responsibility. Please contact your insurance company with any. questions you may have regarding your benefits.
  2. Co-payments and deductibles.ln accordance with your insurance guidelines, all co-payments and deductibles must be paid at the time of service. Most follow up visits are a billed service and are subject to a copay/deductible according to your insurance guidelines including orthotic fittings/follow up appointments and minor office procedures.
  3. Non-covered services. Please be aware that some, and perhaps all, of the services you receive may be not covered or considered medically necessary by your insurance carrier. You must pay for these services in full at the time of service. We will not bill your insurance or supply any correspondence for any non-covered services.
  4. Forms. All patients must complete all forms provided before seeing the doctor. We require you to provide a current/valid photo ID and current valid insurance to provide proof of insurance. We will make a copy of this information for our records. Periodically, we may need you to update your forms. We will get a copy of your insurance card yearly.
  5. Claims. A claim will be sent to your insurance carrier for all covered services. Your insurance company may need you to supply information directly. It is your responsibility to comply with their request. Please be aware that the balance of your claim is your responsibility whether or not your insurance company processes your claim. Your insurance benefit is a contract between you and your insurance company. We follow insurance guidelines.
  6. Referrals. It is the patient's responsibility to ensure the office receives valid referrals prior to your appointment. Failure to do so may result in your appointment being rescheduled. Our office does not keep track of referrals. Please make sure any referral on file is valid prior to your appointment or you may be responsible for the visit.
  7. Overdue balance. If your account is over 90 days past due, you will receive a letter requesting immediate payment. Partial payments will not be accepted unless approved by our Billing Department. Please be aware that if a balance remains unpaid, your account may be sent to a Collection Agency and/or Small Claims Court. If you have a balance that is 90 days overdue or more, we will only treat you for emergency care until your bill is paid in full. You will not be seen for any non-emergency services until your balance is paid in full.

  13. Benefits. As a courtesy, we may check your benefits for a specific service. Please be advised that benefits given are a quote and not a guarantee of payment. Your insurance carrier may not inform us that some services are diagnosis driven, need pre-certification and are only covered if considered medically necessary. We provide you with the information they relay to our office. If your claim is denied, even after a quote is given, you will be responsible for the services. We advise you to verify your coverage and can supply you with any codes necessary to check your benefits.

Assignment and Release: I hereby authorize my insurance benefits to be paid directly to the physician. I am legally responsible for any amount which is not paid by my insurance even if my physician is participating with my insurance company. I also authorize the physician to release any information required to process the claim. I understand that accounts are considered past due if no payment is received within 30 days of billing. If payment is not made within 90 days from the time services are rendered, I agree to pay any and all necessary cost of collections, including but not limited to attorney's fees of 35% on the balance outstanding, court cost and service of processing fees.
