For Patients With Insurance:
We have made arrangements with many insurers / health plans including the following:
- Florida Blue
- United Health Care
We will bill those plans with which we have an agreement. We will collect any required co-payment, co-insurance and/or deductible at the time of service. In the event that your insurer determines a service to be “not covered,” you will be responsible for the complete charge.
Health insurance has become very complex. Your health insurance policy is a contract between you and the insurance company. The physician is not a part of that agreement. In most cases, we will try to help you with coverage issues. Occasionally, however, your insurance company may exclude certain services. It is your responsibility to be familiar with your particular plan and its covered benefits. Rarely, this may result in your insurance determining that a particular service is your responsibility to pay (example: many insurances do not pay for tetanus boosters). If this occurs, it will be your responsibility to pay for such charges.
We must emphasize that as your medical care providers, our relationship and concern is with you and your health, not your insurance company. All charges are your responsibility from the date those services are rendered.
