If you have medical insurance, we are eager to help you receive your maximum allowable benefits. In order to achieve this goal, we need your assistance, and your understanding of our payment policy.You will be asked to update your personal and insurance information periodically, including providing our office with copies of your insurance card and driver’s license. We are required by law to obtain your signature for permission to release information to your insurance carrier. Our failure to obtain these updates could result in criminal and civil penalties and/or expulsion from your insurance plan. Please assist us in complying with your insurance requirements. We will gladly submit fees for your covered medical services to your insurance company. However, we expect payment of all services within 60 days. It may become necessary for you to pay your account in full if your insurance company fails to pay for services within 60 days. It is your responsibility to understand your coverage and benefits, including precertifications, referral and authorization requirements. We will, however, assist you to ensure that all plan requirements are met.
We will gladly discuss your proposed treatment and answer any questions relating to your insurance. Your insurance is a contract between you, your employer and the insurance company. We are not a party to that contract. We must emphasize that as medical care providers, our relationship is with you, not your insurance company. Not all services are a covered benefit in all contracts. Some insurance companies arbitrarily select certain services they will not cover. While the filing of insurance claims is a courtesy that we extend to patients, all charges are your responsibility from the date the services are rendered.
