Payment & Health Insurance

Except for the circumstances described below, we require payment at the time of services.  This can be by cash, check, or credit card (American Express, Mastercard or Visa).  In selected cases according to needs, a payment schedule can be arranged prior to the appointment.

For patients covered by a managed care health insurance plan, with which we have a contract (such as an HMO, PPO, PSO), your payment of office fees will be according to your individual plan/contract.  Please be aware that most plans forbid us to defer collection of co-payments, co-insurances and deductibles.  These must be paid at the time of services.  Also, it is the patient’s responsibility to demonstrate that a deductible has been met; time constraints prevent us from determining this by phone call at the time of checkout.  Please bring a statement or proof of having met the deductible.

For patients covered by a health plan which has not contracted directly with us, we will file your insurance for hospitalizations only.  For office services, we require full payment at the regular office visit fee amounts at the time of services.  An itemized receipt which you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement will be provided.

In all cases please contact your insurer if you have specific questions regarding your health insurance policy.
