Your insurance plan requires co-pays to be collected at the time of service. We accept Mastercard, Visa, Discover, checks and cash. If you do not pay your co-pay at the time of your visit, we will charge an additional $10 to cover the cost of billing services. Returned checks will be charged a $20 fee.
Please bring your insurance card to every office visit. If the insurance you designate is incorrect, you will be responsible for any balance.
For all services rendered to minors, the adult accompanying the patient is responsible for payment, whether a parent/legal guardian or not. If your child will be brought to our office by a babysitter or other caretaker, please be sure to arrange for payment of co-pay to avoid a service charge if we have to bill you. Credit card payment can be made on the phone prior to the appointment.
We bill monthly for unpaid balances. If any portion of your bill has been outstanding for greater than 90 days, you will receive a letter stating that if the balance is not paid within 10 days your account will be forwarded to a collection agency.
If you are experiencing financial hardship, please speak with our billing manager so that we can set up a payment schedule.
Failure to pay an overdue balance on your account, or to set up and abide by an agreed-upon payment schedule, can be cause for dismissal from our practice.
Self-pay: if your child is not covered by insurance at the time of your visit, or if you are from out of town and we are seeing your child as a service to you, the full amount of the visit is due at the time of service.
