There is no price tag on your health and safety.


We participate with most health insurance plans. A complete list can be viewed
here. If a patient is not a member of any of these plans, we will be more than happy to discuss this with them and even consider joining their plan.
The cost of a visit to our office depends on the services performed by the physician or physician assistant. Unless other arrangements have been made, payment is expected at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will file on their health insurance(s), we do ask that payment of any deductible, co-insurance or co-pays be made at the time the service is rendered.

Due to legalities with contracted plans that our office participates with, we are unable to accept only the amount the patient’s insurance company pays. When participating with a contracted plan, we are legally required to bill patients for any remaining balance. This includes deductibles, co-insurance or co-pays. If a patient has no insurance, or does not provide us with verification (ie. Insurance Cards) of insurance, they are considered to be a self-pay patient. Patients without insurance will be expected to pay for all charges in full or to set up a payment plan at checkout.

Our office will complete information that is required for disability forms or Family Medical Leave Act forms. The charge for this service is $10.00 for Disability forms and $25 for Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) forms. Payment is expected when the form is left at the office for completion. Forms will be completed within 7 to 10 days.

We feel our fees are appropriate and fair. However, if you have any questions regarding them or a statement you have received, please give us a call.

WE ACCEPT: CASH, CHECK, MASTERCARD and VISA


Collection Policy
As with any business, we adhere to a collection policy that ensures that we have the financial means to maintain this health care facility for our patients. Therefore, if a patients account becomes past due, we will take action to recover the amount due. This will be done. After 60 days have passed from the balance becoming the patient's responsibility.

We understand that due to financial hardships it is sometimes difficult to pay large balances at one time. We are more than willing to set up payment arrangements to help our patients. If a payment plan is intentionally not followed we have no other recourse than to pursue collection efforts.
