Insurance Please remember that your insurance is a contract between you and your insurance carrier. We will, as a courtesy, bill your insurance and help you receive the maximum allowable benefit under your policy. We have found that patients who are involved with their claims process are more successful at receiving prompt and accurate payment services from the insurance carrier. It is your responsibility to provide all necessary insurance eligibility, identification, authorization, and referral information and to notify our office of any information changes when they occur. It is the patient’s responsibility to know if our office is participating or non-participating with their insurance plan. Failure to provide all required information may necessitate patient payment for all charges. When insurance is involved, we are contractually obligated to collect co-payments, co-insurance, and deductibles, as outlined by your insurance carrier.
Miscellaneous Forms, Additional Information and Authorizations We will provide all necessary information to have your benefits released. However if it becomes necessary to submit redundant or unnecessary information for the completion of the claim forms for school, sports, or extra curricular activities; there will be an administrative fee, not to exceed $35.00, for the additional information. Missed
Appointments We require notice of cancellations 24 hours in advance. If you fail to keep your appointments without notifying us in advance: a missed appointment fee will apply. These fees are typically $35.00 but not to exceed one-half of the cost of your scheduled appointment.
