If you need an insurance referral to see a specialist please request it at least seventy two (72) hours before each appointment with your specialist, so we will have adequate time to obtain it. Doing so will ensure your referral is up to date and that your visit will be covered. We cannot do retro referrals. It is the patient’s responsibility to obtain and confirm your referral. Please double check with the nursing staff before you leave about your referral.
Insurance Cards: We now ask to see your insurance cards each time you come in. We MUST HAVE copies of all your active insurance cards. Please notify us of any change in your insurance, address, place of employment, phone number, etc. in writing when you arrive and BEFORE you see your physician or have any testing.
Insurance /Account Balances: Co-payments, deductibles and account balances are due before each visit. Please be aware that many insurance companies charge a percentage copayment for procedures and that you may have a copayment for an office visit and only 80/20 coverage on other services. Knowing what your insurance company covers is your responsibility. If you are not covered by medical insurance, full payment is due at the time of each visit or service.
