Out-of-pocket cost information for patients
We are required by law to bill you for amounts considered to be “Patient Responsibility” by insurance companies, including Medicare.
If you are covered by a managed-care (HMO or PPO) plan, your co-payment must be collected at the time of service. This is a contractual requirement of insurers. We accept most major credit cards.
You will receive a monthly statement for all charges considered “Patient Responsibility.” Our policy is for all accounts to be settled in 90 days. You may contact our billing department if you need special arrangements. Again, we accept most major credit cards.
If you have any questions regarding insurance or your financial responsibilities, please feel free to contact the office at 919-580-0000 to be directed to someone who can help you.
