INSURANCE
It is the patient’s responsibility to provide our office with current insurance information. We will ask for your insurance card at your first visit and will copy for our records. We will request a copy at each annual office visit, or if you have not been seen in the past 6 months. If your insurance information changes at any time during your treatment, it is ultimately your responsibility to provide us with the new information as soon as it becomes active. If current information is not obtained at the time of service it will be the patient’s responsibility to pay the entire balance until current information is provided to our office. It is the patient’s responsibility to know their benefits and coverage

Your insurance policy is a contract between you and the insurance company. As a courtesy and pursuant to contractual obligations we will file all your claims for you. However, we will not become involved in any disputes between you and your insurance carrier. This includes, but is not limited to, deductibles, copays, and non-covered charges.

REFERRALS
Some insurance policies require you as the policy holder to obtain a referral from your primary care physician, or student health center prior to receiving treatment at our office. It is your responsibility to obtain this documentation and present it to our office at the time of service. If this information is not obtained, you will be responsible for the entire balance of your account.

Copays are due at the time of service. Copays are usually collected PRIOR to you seeing the doctor but may sometimes be collected after you have received treatment.

MISSED APPOINTMENTS
