Patients who wish to make a visit are encouraged to call and speak to the Clinic Manager. A benefit check will be done to determine the cost of a visit at our office for your particular health insurance policy. 

Submitting insurance claims 
As a convenience for the patient, this office will send claims for services to insurance companies, provided that the patient has given complete and accurate information regarding their insurance plan coverage. For those patients who have an HMO plan that requires a referral from another doctor, it is the patient's responsibility to make sure that a valid referral for services has been received by the Clinic at the time of the visit

Insurance card required 
All patients are required to provide a picture ID (e.g. driver's license) and medical insurance card. At the initial visit, copies of these cards will be added to the patient's secure electronic chart. This is required to prevent insurance fraud and identity theft. At the initial visit, the patient must sign an agreement for assignment of benefits (payment) from the insurance company and release of information to the insurance company (in case of payment denial).

Payment methods
The Clinic accepts cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express cards. The Clinic does not routinely accept personal checks. If the patient sends a check and the bank declines it, the patient will be responsible for a $100 service fee to cover bank and reprocessing fees.

Laboratory billing
​The Clinic offers laboratory services as a convenience to the patient. Patients are not required to use the Clinic's lab service if it is not convenient for them. Patients may go outside the clinic and choose a different laboratory to process any necessary tests prescribed by a provider at the Clinic. Patients are responsible for any charges these outside laboratories may bill for after claims have been processed by the insurance company. All costs for laboratory tests are separate from any costs for an office visit.
