Frequently Asked Questions
What if I have coverage through two policies?
Some patients have coverage through two policies and can incur out-of-pocket expenses for health care services. As a courtesy, we will submit your claims to both insurance companies. You may receive a bill for out-of-pocket expenses after both insurance companies have reviewed your claims. If you find yourself in this situation, contact the second insurance company for more information.
Why did I get charged a cancellation fee?
Depending on the specialty area in which your appointment is scheduled, a cancellation fee may be charged. This fee for cancellation can be billed for cancellation with less than 24 hours notice or less than 48 hours, per the specialty’s policy.
What if I am seeing the doctor because I was in a car accident or had an accident at work?
On occasion, visits and medical care can be a result of an injury that occurs in a motor vehicle accident or while at work. It is important that you let your physician's office know when scheduling an appointment and when checking in that the visit is related to this type of injury. In addition, it is important that you provide our offices with the information for your auto insurer and/or worker's compensation carrier so that we can direct the claim for your services to the appropriate insurer.
