Office Insurance Policies
We all know that insurance can be a very confusing issue. It is our policy to bill your insurance company and follow up until we get a satisfactory explanation from them regarding your claim. We try to guesstimate your estimated responsibility as best we can, based on the information that we receive from your insurance company as well as from you the subscriber.
Sometimes it is unavoidable to bill you after the insurance company pays, because the amount paid by your insurance company is much lower than we have anticipated. There is no exact science as every insurance/insurer is different depending upon which option your employers choose, and we would have no way of knowing any of that information.
We want all of our patients to be aware of the fact that although we do our best to accommodate all of our insured patients, we cannot guarantee that payment will be made by your insurance company. Any issues beyond our control are the patient’s responsibility.
On very large cases or procedures we will do a pretreatment estimate for the patient so that we may have a clearer picture of the patient’s responsibility. Again, your insurance company will tell you that this is not a guarantee of payment from them but a “ballpark” figure of what the patient will be required to pay.
Please rest assured that we will exhaust all measures to collect from your insurance company first. However, if insurance has not paid within 90 days the balance will return to the patient to contact their insurance company for further information.
