Medical insurance plans and payment options

It is the responsibility of the patient to pay for medical treatment. Insurance is filed as a courtesy to patients. Payment is due at time of service. However, no one will be denied urgent care due to inability to pay. This office participates in most health insurance plans.

As a convenience to our patients, we will file all insurance claims, primary and supplementary. Patients, insurance companies and doctor's offices can make mistakes, and it requires the assistance of all three parties to make the process go smoothly.

Worker's compensation claims are verified with the employer or their compensation carrier. The address, claim number and authorization of the compensation carrier, not the employer, are required for treatment. Patients will not receive a bill unless the claim is denied by the employer or the carrier. In that case, the patient will be responsible for all medical expenses.

We realize that medical care can be quite expensive and that patients are frequently out of work due to their injury or illness. If you anticipate financial problems, please contact our billing staff to make appropriate arrangements. When no payment is made on account after 90 days, it is considered delinquent and special attempts to contact the responsible party will be made.
