Please present your valid insurance card at each visit. If your claim is rejected due to incorrect insurance or coverage not in effect, then you are responsible for the charges.

Co-pays are due at time of appointment. It is your responsibility to know your insurance plan. All co-insurance, deductibles, and non-covered expenses will be paid in accordance with our office policies.
We will submit claims on your behalf to your insurance company for payment. Your insurance company may require that you supply certain information directly. It is your responsibility to coordinate your benefits with your carrier. Please be aware that the balance of your claim is your responsibility whether or not your insurance company pays your claim.
If your insurance changes, please notify us before your next visit, so we can update your insurance information in our system.

We will also do our best to verify your insurance coverage prior to your visit to minimize surprises at the time of visit.
