Payment is due at the time that services are provided. This includes insurance copays and payments for services not covered by your insurance. It is a violation of insurance policies for patients not to pay copays or for a provider not to collect them. While we do everything to ensure that your insurance covers your expenses, we can not be responsible for uncovered expenses. It is ultimately the patients' responsibility to find out and know what their insurance covers and does not cover. We will help as we are able. If we have problems getting your insurance to pay for services rendered, we may ask you to help or will be forced to pass the charges on to you. As the insurances may sometimes try to give us and patients a "run around" with off-shore call centers, we encourage every patient we need to ask for such assistance to complain to the Georgia's Office of Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner.
If you provide us with inaccurate or false insurance information and a claim is rejected, we will be happy to re-file it for a $25 re-filing fee. Otherwise, you can pay us in full and submit your claim to your insurance company yourself. We will be happy to provide you the information needed to do this.
We are currently not able to accept credit cards or debit cards. There will be a $42 charge for any returned check.
Accounts more than 30 days past due are assessed a $15 late penalty each billing cycle they are past due. After three billing cycles, accounts will be turned over to an outside collection agency and assessed an additional fee of 35% of the total amount due. Patients are responsible for paying the full original balance, the collection fees and any and all other costs of collecting monies owed, including court costs and attorney fees.
