Financial Policies including Insurance and Billing

Please confirm our In Network Status with your insurance carrier prior to your appointment as insurance carriers change their affiliation without notice to providers.
If we participate (are contracted) with a commercial insurance plan under which you are covered, we will bill your carrier for all the charges that are covered, i.e., medically necessary services rendered. We will bill both your primary and secondary insurance plans. You will be responsible at the time of service for payment of:
  1. The annual deductibles
  2. Co-payments/co-insurance
  3. Charges for non-covered or cosmetic services*
*If you have Medicare you will be asked to sign an Advanced Notice of Liability Form in the event that a service is provided which we know is not covered by Medicare.
If a charge or procedure is not covered by your insurance you, the patient, will be responsible for all remaining balances after we receive a denial from your insurance carrier.
For patients who have insurance coverage with an insurance carrier with which we do not have a contractual relationship please not the following:
  1. We will file both your primary and secondary insurance. If we do not receive a payment from your primary carrier within 60 days of filing, you will be billed for the entire amount. Payment is due 10 days after receipt of the statement.
  2. When we receive payment from the primary insurance carrier, we will file a claim with your secondary insurance carrier. If we do not receive payment from your primary carrier within 60 days of filing, you will be billed for the entire amount. Payment is due 10 days after receipt of the statement.
  3. If you only have primary insurance (e.g., no secondary/supplemental coverage), a partial payment will be due at the time of service. Any amount not paid by your insurance company will be billed to you. Please understand that since we do not have a contract with your plan, we are not obligated to adjust our charges based on your plan's coverage or benefits. After your primary carrier has paid, the remaining balance will be billed to you and is due and payable 10 days after receipt of the statement.
If your insurance deductible has not been met, you may be required to pay your full deductible at time of service (depending on your procedure).
All unpaid account balances remaining after 60 days will accrue interest at a rate of 18% annually.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, and CareCredit® for payment of balances, deductibles, co-payments, and cosmetic services. Please see http://www.carecredit.com/cosmetic/ for more information on payment plans available.
