We will file your insurance for you, however, you are ultimately responsible for your charges.
1)Please bring your insurance card and photo ID to each visit
2)All co payments and percentages are due at the time of service, as per our contract with your insurance carrier.
3)If we do not participate with your insurance or you cannot provide us with the information needed to file, payment is expected in full at the time of service.
4)Not all services are covered by all insurances and may result in a patient balance. Please be familiar with your policy guidelines. If there are questions, you may call your insurance company directly before services are rendered. Some of the studies that may not be covered by your insurance are as follows, but not limited to:
a)Vision and hearing screening as part of the physical
d)urinalysis when done as part of a physical
e)hemoglobin when done as part of a physical
h)lead test when done as part of physical
We feel that these services are not only medically necessary, but also essential to ensure we are continuously providing exceptional customer service.
5)It is your responsibility to notify our office prior to any service of any insurance changes.
6)In the event of divorce or separation, we will provide you with a receipt of copay/deductible/% of charges, etc. You are still responsible for payment at the time of service.
1)Your appointment time is specific for you. If you arrive late for your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule your appointment. If you need to cancel your appointment, please try to call 24 hours in advance.
2) If you are a “no show” for your appointment 3 times, we reserve the right to discharge your children from this practice. A “no show” is considered if you do not call; do not show for the appointment; or arrive late for the appointment. For any of these circumstances, you will be charged a fee that is not covered by insurances. You will also receive a warning notice after each “no show” appointment.
2)We will have some open slots each day for sick children. Please call ahead, as we will no longer accept “walk ins”.
3)We try to have a person answer each call, however, at times, it will be necessary for our automated message to respond. We have many options for you to choose. It is our responsibility to retrieve those messages and respond as quickly as possible. It is your responsibility to leave adequate information for the call back. If there is a no answer, we will leave a message for you. Please listen to that message before calling us back.
