Insurance and Financial Options
Determining your benefits can be an arduous task. Our ultimate goal is to make it as easy for you as possible. When you call for your appointment, simply provide us with your insurance information and we will verify your benefits for you. We do not want finances to get in the way of your treatment. As a service to our patients, our practice accepts assignment for the following insurances:
- United Healthcare
We accept assignment from other smaller companies which may not be listed. Please call our office to check if we participate with a company which may not be listed here.
For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders and major credit cards. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office.
Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your insurance benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
