Patient 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.
WE DO NOT PARTICIPATE IN ANY MEDICAID PROGRAMS
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
