Fees and Billing
Fees are based on the time and complexity of your evaluation plus any laboratory evaluation that is required. The physician’s fee for an initial workup varies, depending on the time spent both with you and your records. The extent of initial laboratory evaluation will depend on the complexity of your illness. The cost of follow-up visits will also depend on the length and complexity of the visit. Our fees are in keeping with the usual and customary charges for internal medicine subspecialty evaluations in this area.
Unfortunately, statements and billing costs have become very expensive and because we do our best to keep all medical costs down, we expect our patients to pay their bills at the time services are rendered.
If you have any questions regarding your charges or would like to discuss terms of payment, our office manager is always willing to discuss these matters with you. For your convenience we do accept MasterCard and Visa.
We currently participate with most major medical insurance plans as well as Medicare.
If we do not participate with your plan, don't worry. We have many patients who have been seen by us for many years out-of-network as the office works very hard to make care affordable for you in this ever changing insurance marketplace.
You are responsible for paying your co-pay at the time of service.
Please bring your insurance identification card with you.
Our doctors do not evaluate workers compensation cases.
Responsibility for payment is your obligation and unless prior arrangements have been made, payment is expected at the time of your visit.
