Patient Account Policy
The patient is responsible to begin making payments for balances after 90 days from the date of service regardless of insurance delays or medical reviews. The patient is responsible for charges in the event an insurance company determines treatment or diagnosis does not meet medical necessity requirements. Patients are required to pay remaining charges after insurance within 6 months (for initial balances of $499 or less) or within 12 months for initial balances of $500 and over. A minimum payment of $25.00 per month is required on each account. As an added convenience, we offer a monthly electronic automatic payment program. Patients may apply for an extended payment plan through Care Credit. Patient accounts that are not paid monthly will be considered delinquent and may be sent to an outside agency for collection. If you have questions or concerns please contact the Business Office at 859-260-7025.
