Insurance & Payment

Please be sure to familiarize yourself with your insurance policy and the services that are both covered and not covered. Ultimately it is your responsibility to understand your policy and the financial responsibilities for which you are accountable. Charges for office visits, procedures, and treatments are due at the time of service, meaning that covered charges will be billed on your behalf. Co-payments, deductibles and account balances will be collected when you check in for your appointment.


Payment for any uncovered services is expected upon check out. We accept

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Credit card


We participate in most insurance and managed care plans. As designated providers for these carriers, we will file for payment of covered charges with your insurance carrier. In order for us to properly file charges, we will require a photocopy of your insurance card and a photo ID at the time that you check in for your appointment. If you have supplemental carrier coverage, we will need a photo copy of that insurance card as well so please remember to bring these items to each appointment.

If you are covered by managed care insurance, we will need to verify that you are currently eligible for benefits before the doctor sees you. The majority of these organizations require prior authorization for each visit and the patient is responsible for acquiring office visit authorizations.

Please remember: Regardless of the type of insurance or the party you feel is responsible for your bill, our agreement for treatment is with you. We will ultimately look only to you for payment of your account.
