Insurance Participation

Patients must have private insurance or agree/adhere to the self pay policy in order to be scheduled.

Patients involved in other third party injuries without legal representation ( i.e. fall on private or corporate property, boating accident, dog bite, disputed workers compensation, etc.) will be handled as follows:

The patient must agree and adhere to the self pay policy. Even if they have private insurance we will not bill them. Private insurance will not cover these types of liability claims. This does not go against our contracts that we have with participating insurances.

MVA/Third Party Liability Policy

We will not see patients who are involved in medical/legal issues.

Verification of med/pip coverage through auto insurance is required prior to an appointment being scheduled.

We require an initial $250.00 pre-payment on your account with subsequent payments of at least $50.00 per visit in order to keep your scheduled appointment. For patients being evaluated for spine-related issues the prepayment is $350.00. The subsequent payments are the same. This will only apply to patients who do not have medical coverage thorough a contracted insurance carrier.

Your medical insurance will be billed as secondary only after payment by liability insurance is complete - or if we receive a written denial from your liability carrier.

You will receive a monthly statement from our office. If there is any delay in payment, we ask that you contact us immediately.

Self pay patients

It is the policy of Carondelet Orthopeadic Surgeons, P.A. to require an initial $250.00 pre-payment on your account for general orthopaedic concerns and a $350.00 prepayment for spinal concerns.

Regardless of your balance due, we will require subsequent payments of at least $50.00 per visit, in order to keep your scheduled appointment(s). Any over-payment will be issued as a refund at the completion of your treatment.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or personal check.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact our billing department at: (913) 642-0200, option "3."
