Thank you for choosing our office to provide you with medical care. We are committed to serving you with skill and high-quality care. The medical services provided by our office are services you have elected to receive and may create a financial responsibility on your part.
We participate in most insurance plans. If you are not insured by a plan we participate with, payment in full is expected at each visit. If you are insured by a plan we participate with but do not have an up-to-date insurance card, payment in full for each visit is required until we can verify your coverage. Knowing your insurance benefits is your responsibility. Please contact your insurance company with any questions you may have regarding your coverage.
We are a participating Medicare provider. Medicare as well as your secondary insurance (if any) will be billed for you. However, that does not mean that all services are covered. Patients are responsible for paying their annual deductible if it has not yet been met. You are also responsible for any copayments, which are usually 20% of the allowed amount for an item or service.
Your medical claim will be forwarded to your secondary insurance (if any) after payment and/or explanation of benefits (EOB) is received from your primary insurance company.
Copayments and Deductibles
All co-payments and deductibles must be paid at the time of service. We accept the following payment methods: VISA/MasterCard/Discover/American Express.
Our office can design and create custom orthotics that are tailored to your particular foot disorder or condition. Many insurances cover this service but it is not uniform. Because of the time and cost incurred by our office to provide orthotics, we must charge a nonrefundable 50% deposit at time of order with the remainder due upon receipt of the orthotics.
Patient Financing for out-of-pocket expenses.
In an effort to make care accessible to all of our patients regardless of their financial situation, we’ve partnered with Parasail to find patient‐friendly payment plans that fit their needs. Parasail is a unique lender in the field of medical loans. Unlike credits cards, Parasail has fixed interest rate loans based on your financial information, no fees, and affordable payments that can be spread out monthly to fit your budget to ensure that you get the care that you need.
Payment in full is due at the time of service if you do not have health insurance. For your convenience, we accept the CareCredit healthcare card. Applying is fast, easy, and secure. Learn more about CareCredit.
Please be aware that some of the services you receive may not be covered by Medicare or other insurers. You are responsible for the payment of these services.
A fee of $25.00 will be applied for all documents that require completion by the physician. Additionally, there will be a fee for a copy of your medical records and X-Ray images.
We are required to follow the guidelines of your managed care plan, which mandates that when you visit a specialist such as ours, you must have a referral from your primary care physician prior to seeking specialty care, if required. Therefore, you are financially responsible for the services received, unless your referral is presented at the time of the visit. If you do not have a referral from your primary care physician at the time of the visit, you will be financially responsible for all services received due in full upon completion of the visit. Full credit will be given if a referral is presented to our office within 48 hours of this visit. You will also be given the option to reschedule your appointment.
We will submit your claim to your insurance company, however, your insurance company may need you to supply certain information directly. It is your responsibility to comply with their request. Any unpaid balance not covered by your insurance is your responsibility.
YOUR BALANCE MUST BE PAID IN FULL, PRIOR TO CONTINUING VISITS.
You will be sent three notices regarding your outstanding balance after payment and/or explanation of benefits (EOB) is received from your insurance company/companies. After the third notice, your account will be forwarded to collections. Please notify the billing office if you are unable to pay your bill in full. Payment arrangements may be available although interest will accrue at a rate of 15% monthly. We accept the following payment methods: VISA/MasterCard/Discover/American Express. An additional $25.00 will be added to your statement if the check is returned for insufficient funds. In the event that your insurance company sends payment directly to you, it should be forwarded to our office to be applied to your balance. In the event, you do not show up for your appointment, and you failed to call the office to cancel or reschedule, you are defined as a “no-show” and will be billed $75.00.
