Our practice participates with numerous insurance companies. For patients who are beneficiaries of one of these insurance companies, our billing office will submit a claim for services rendered. All necessary insurance information, including special forms, must be completed by the patient.

It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amounts, co-insurance or any other balance not paid by your insurance company.

If a patient has insurance in which we do not participate, our office is happy to file a claim upon request; however, the patient will be responsible for any out of network expenses that may incur.
