Please understand that ultimately, the patient is responsible for payment of the account, including any balance not covered by insurance. At the time of your visit you are responsible for any known co-payment or deductible not satisfied at the time of your exam, as well as any non-covered services. In most cases, when your appointment is confirmed you will be provided with an estimate of any payment you need to bring with you to your appointment. In the event that your insurance company does not make payment within 45 days, the unpaid balance becomes your responsibility. Payment plans can be arranged by calling the Billing Office.
