We participate with Medicare and most insurance plans. Participation varies as changes occur within the insurance industry. Please check with our receptionists to confirm if we participate with your insurance plan.
For your convenience, we will file your primary insurance claims if you provide us with the correct billing information. We ask you to pay the deductible, co-insurance, or co-payment at the time of service. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, cash, and checks.
What Is a Deductible?
An insurance deductible is a dollar amount to be paid out of pocket by you and your other family members in your medical insurance policy for medical expenses, such as doctor visits, medical procedures, and/or hospitalization, before the policy will start paying us for your visit and any procedure ordered during the visit to our office.
Why Do We Collect It Today?
The health insurance contract establishes mutually agreed-upon deductible and co-payment amounts for both in-network and out-of-network providers. Those agreed amounts are due from the patient for services provided. Unless you have met your annual deductible, an estimation of your visit amount will be collected as part of your out of pocket expense related to today’s visit and ultimately towards decreasing the total deductible for the current year. If you can show us that you have met your deductible, then we will not need to collect up front. We will continue to collect based on each visits estimation until your deductible is met.
