Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance plan. We cannot bill your insurance company unless you give us CURRENT and VALID insurance information. All health plans are not the same, and they do not always cover the same services. In the event your health plan determines a service is “not covered”, you will be responsible for the complete charge. This office is not responsible for disputing your insurance company’s decision regarding coverage.
We expect that you know your insurance benefits including but not limited to: deductible and co-payment amounts as well as labs, radiology facilities and hospitals contracted with your plan. If you have insurance coverage with a plan in which we do not participate or you have no health insurance plan, our charges for your care and treatment are due at the time of service. You may, however, bill your insurance company even if we are not a contracted provider. If your insurance contracts with a particular lab, you MUST provide us with the name of the lab prior to collection of any specimens. This office is not responsible for lab charges incurred due to incorrect information or lack of information provided to us.
Your insurance is your responsibility! As a courtesy to our patients, we will file claims for the plans with which we have an agreement. If your insurance company does not pay you will be responsible for payments. We will bill your secondary insurance only ONE time; if they do not pay, you will be held responsible. Any cost incurred by this office because of incorrect information provided to us will be your responsibility. Payment is due upon receipt of a statement from our office.
If your account should go into default you understand that you may be held liable for all reasonable collection fees and attorney fees incurred to collect this debt.
