The fee schedule has been designed to represent the usual and customary charges. It reflects time spent, supplies needed and the complexity of the problem and/or procedure. Because sending monthly statements is costly for us, and ultimately passed on to you, payment for services is expected when those services are rendered. We accept American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and VISA for your convenience as well as personal checks and cash.
We realize you may have financial problems, at times, making immediate payment difficult. Please feel free to discuss this with us by calling any of our offices and pressing option 5. While we are concerned about our collections and expenses, we do not intend to jeopardize your child’s medical care. We always try to honor a faithful relationship.
Past due amounts that are greater than 90 days over due are subject to being turned over to a collection agency and termination from our practice could result. You are strongly encouraged to pay all past due amounts promptly or set up a payment plan with us.
There is a $35.00 charge for returned checks. If two (2) checks are returned, you will no longer be able to write checks in our office. Payments must be made either by cash, credit card, money order, or certified check.
After one (1) no show, you will receive a warning letter. After a second no show, you will receive another letter and a $25.00 charge will be added to your account. Insurance will not pay for this charge. After a third no show, your account will be reviewed for possible termination from our practice.
Our bookkeeping personnel would be happy to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about your account or insurance. They can be reached by contacting any of our offices and selecting option 5.
