In order to expedite the insurance and payment process, please follow the below policies:
We recommend that you review your specific insurance plan for co-pay, deductible and other benefit information prior to your office visit. As there are hundreds of insurance plans, it is the patient’s responsibility to check with your insurance company to ensure we accept your individual plan. If we do not participate with your health insurance, you will be responsible for the full amount of the office visit and any related services.
Please bring your insurance card and prior authorization information (if necessary) with you to your appointment.
At the time of your office visit, you may be responsible for the following charges:
- Insurance Co-Pays (due at time of check-in)
- Annual Insurance Deductible
- Coinsurance Amounts
- Charges for any services and supplies not covered by insurance
- Any services denied by insurance
- Cosmetic Services (are not covered by insurance)
Any non-insurance visits (for either medical or cosmetic services) are due in full once services are rendered.
