  • Fees

    • Our charges for services, including office visits and procedures, are based upon the severity and complexity of your injury or illness as well as the time spent treating you.  Our charges are based on requirements under Federal guidelines.  Our staff will be glad to discuss our fees with you.
  • Insurance

    • Our business office will submit primary and secondary insurance claims for you, subject to your having given us current information PRIOR to the service being provided.

    • Policy coverage varies from one insurance plan to another, as do the "usual, customary and reasonable" fees that various insurance plans have established.  Should there be a dispute related to the service provided or the charge for that service, our clinic will provide supporting documents, but the settlement of that dispute between your insurance carrier is between you and your insurance carrier.  Our office is not involved in the settlement of such disputes.  The final responsibility for the services provided to you is yours.
