Insurance and Billing
At the time of your visit, patients need to provide our office with the correct insurance information, including your insurance card to be copied. We ask that all co-insurance and deductibles be paid at the time the service is performed. We can also offer billing options and payment plans for you, provided you have given us all pertinent billing information.
Your insurance coverage is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Financial responsibility rests with the patient for deductibles, co-insurance and non-covered services. In addition to cash and personal checks, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Care Credit and debit cards. We offer the option to pay bills online. Pay online using our secure server here.
You may receive a separate bill for anesthesia, pathology and labs. When procedures are performed, a biopsy specimen may be sent to a lab to be analyzed. The fee for this is a separate charge from your office services. Your payment for this lab service should be sent directly to the lab.

The Cost of Your Procedure
Because you are responsible for costs for covered healthcare services until you reach your deductible, you should comparison shop if you elect to have a nonemergency procedure.
You can use tools like Healthcare Bluebook and the Medicare Procedure Price Lookup (for Medicare patients). Many health insurance websites also provide information on where to find in-network services.
A High-Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) is a plan with a higher deductible than a traditional health insurance plan.
A High Deductible Health Plan (HDHP) can be a wise way to save money on health insurance and take a proactive role in your healthcare.
