Payment & Insurance Info
Payment is expected at the time services are rendered or products are purchased.
For your convenience, we accept many insurance plans and offer an array of payment options including:
- Most major credit cards including Mastercard, VISA, American Express, and Discover
- CareCredit®. See more about this option below.
We accept most insurance plans, including HMO and PPO plans. Patients enrolled in HMO plans will require a referral from their primary care physician before we can schedule your appointment.
If you have any questions about whether your plan is covered with us, please call your insurance company and ask if we are in-network.
Effective 1-1-2016 our office was NOT selected for a majority of health plans through the Market Place Exchange, (Affordable Care Act). They select the physicians so please call your plan for in-network and out-of-network status.
**IF YOUR CARD HAS QHP ON THE FRONT OR BACK WE DO NOT PARTICIPATE**
At the bottom of this page is a current list of our participating insurance plans. Brands are subject to change.
**NOT ON PLANS THROUGH THE MARKET PLACE**
You will be given a summary of benefits at your initial visit, please ask about anything you may not understand. Some visits (procedures/surgeries) with our office may NOT fall under your normal copay and may be applied to your deductible or percentage of payment. Always be sure and request the office to give you a new summary of benefits if your insurance plan changes.
Changes in Insurance Benefits
You must contact our office at least 48 hours before your next scheduled appointment to update us with your new information. This allows us to verify coverage and provide you with a summary of benefits at the time of your appointment. Due to time issues, we cannot verify new insurance coverage at the time of your appointment. If you present new insurance information at the time of your appointment you will be asked to reschedule your appointment to allow us time for insurance verification (and to notify you of needed referrals for HMO plans). If you choose not to reschedule and to have your child seen without verification of benefits, you will be required to pay in full for the visit.
