We will bill your insurance as a courtesy to you with a copy of the insurance card you provide. All primary and secondary insurance information must be provided at the time of service, you are responsible for notifying our office of any changes to your insurance throughout the year. If you do not have your insurance card, full payment is due at the time of service. It is your responsibility to keep track of requirements of your plan. Each plan has different stipulations regarding how often services may be rendered and, more importantly, where those services may be performed. If you do not inform us of any special requirement in your contract and we subsequently order services, such as lab work* or hospitalization, that are not covered, the selected medical facility will have no choice but to bill you for those charges. Payment for those charges is then your responsibility.
