Financial Information & Policy
It is the goal of this practice to provide not only the finest care available, but to also provide financial services that do not cause undue hardship. As a courtesy to all our patients we bill all primary and secondary insurance carriers. The normal time allowed for response is 30 days. Statements are sent out monthly from our office showing any portion unpaid by the insurance
carrier. Since any charges still remaining are ultimately the patient's responsibility, we ask that you follow up with your carrier to see that all your charges are paid. The patient 'is always expected to pay his portion at time of service, including any deductibles. Our Business Manager is available to answer any of your questions at any time, and to discuss any financial problems you may have.
