Financial
We will be more than happy to submit insurance forms for you and help you recover the most from your benefits. We will do everything we can to help you afford the treatment you need and want. Forms of payment accepted by the office are check or cash. Some patients now can use Health Savings Account Benefits or Flexible Health Spending Accounts as reimbursements or direct payment of services not covered by insurance, or to help with deductible and copayment repsonsibilities.

Cancellations and Broken Appointments
If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you kindly provide us with at least 24 hours notice to avoid charges not covered by any insurance. We ask for this advance notice as a courtesy to all patients , so that we can offer this appointment to another patient. A fee is charged if a patient does not show up for an appointment without sufficient notice. Please see details on our patient registration form ; My First Visit Form ; and Office Policy Statements.

Co-Pays:  A fixed payment set by the insurance carrier, and often noted on your card  ( so you know in advance your minimum payment obligation )  due at the time of each office visit.   This is a " Specialist " office, so if more than one co-pay is listed, look for SP and then the amount.

Co-Insurance:  Often in  addition to a co-pay, it is a percentage of an approved and covered service ( not all services are covered ) , often starting  After your Deductible is met.  For example, your insurance begins paying 80 % ( you pay 20 % ) or insurnace pays 90% (  you pay 10 % ).

Deductible The Out-Of-Pocket patients have agreed , via their insurance contract, to pay physicians before you benefits kick in.  Generally, lower premiums mean higher deductibles, and vice versae ( perhaps like your car insurance or home owners insurance if applicable ) .
