Billing

Fees are based on the time and complexity of your evaluation. The physician’s fee for your treatment varies, depending on the time spent both with you and with your records. Our fees are in keeping with the usual and customary charges for internal medicine subspecialty evaluations in this area. At the end of each visit you will receive an itemized bill containing the physician’s fees plus any other charges.

We expect our patients to pay their bills at the time services are rendered. If you have any questions regarding your charges, or would like to discuss terms of payment, our office manager is always willing to discuss these matters with you. For your convenience we do accept MasterCard and Visa.

Please be aware of your out-of-network benefits.

Our doctors do not evaluate workers compensation cases.

Responsibility for payment is your obligation, and unless prior arrangements have been made, payment is expected at the time of your visit. Any financial benefits that you may receive from a third party, insurance company, or governmental agency are strictly a matter of settlement between you and the health insurance carrier or governmental agency. Third party benefits are not determined by our office. Any monies received by us from those agencies will be applied to your account balance or refunded to you.

Certain forms regarding proof of disability require the evaluation of the patient’s chart by the physician in order to answer specific questions. Such forms also often require completion by our staff. A fee for the completion of these forms will be charged based upon the complexity of the form.
