Fee and Billing Policies
Managed Care Patients
Patients must have a valid insurance ID card and active coverage in effect on the date of service.
GI specialty patients referred to this office, with insurance plans that require referrals from their PCPs, must bring such referrals in writing at the time of initial visit, or fax them to us in advance of your appointment.
All managed care co-payments and deductibles are due at the time of service. We will submit all claims to your primary insurance carrier, but it is not our policy to bill secondary insurance plans for any balances due, after waiting for your primary insurance payment. All such balances due will be payable directly by you, and we will assist you with filling out any secondary insurance claims.
Patients are directly responsible for payment for non-covered services, and will receive written notice from us in advance if this is likely to happen.
We participate in Medicare, and accept assignment from all Medicare patients. However, patients are responsible for payment of the annual deductible.
New patients are required to leave a current valid credit card number on file, to secure any balances or deductibles that are unpaid within 30 days of invoice for such balances.
