Insurance And Payment Policies

Our physicians are on the panel of most health plans in the area. In addition, we accept Medicare and Worker’s Compensation.  Please bring your insurance card and a photo id with you for every visit.  We are willing to provide any and all care that adheres to your insurance company guidelines but we need your help. It is impossible to keep track of all the individual insurance plan requirements. Each insurance plan has different policies regarding how often services may be rendered and where the services may be performed. We depend on you to know the requirements of your insurance coverage. If you are covered by more than one plan, please bring a membership card for each plan.

 

We collect the CO-PAYMENT at the time of the visit. Please remember that insurance is considered a method of assisting the patient with medical expenses and is not a substitute for payment. For your convenience we accept CASH, CHECK, VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS & DISCOVER.

 

Please check with our business office for any specific questions by phone (859) 422-4551 or contact your insurance carrier.
