Policies & Procedures
Insurance & Referrals
Patients are responsible for understanding their insurance plan and are expected to pay all co-pays, co-insurance and deductibles. Please contact your insurance carrier to ensure we are an "In-Network" provider prior to your first appointment. If your insurance changes at any time, it is your responsibility to notify our office.
If your visit requires a referral, it is ultimately the patient's responsibility to obtain it prior to your appointment. Our office will communicate with your physician’s office at least 3 days prior to your appointment to assist in this process. Patients will be billed for services rendered if a referral is not received or is not considered valid by the insurance carrier or provider.
Missed Appointments & No-Show Fees
We understand that plans change and emergencies happen, but we kindly ask that you contact our office prior to 24 hours before your scheduled appointment to reschedule or cancel. Our office will either call, email or text your appointment reminder based on your selection, however, it is still the responsibility of the patient to note the appointment at the time they originally schedule it. We cannot be held responsible for being unable to reach you without accurate contact information provided to us.
Patients who miss their scheduled appointment and do not contact our office ahead of time or immediately thereafter with a valid reason (i.e. hospital visit or illness), a $25.00 no-show fee may be applied to your account and will be collected before any future visits.
Refill requests should be discussed at the time of your appointment. If you will need a refill before your next visit, please contact your pharmacy at least 7-10 days before you run out of medication. Have them fax a refill request to our office and check back with them at least 3 days after to follow up before you contact our office. This allows us time to receive and process your request in a timely and reasonable manner.
Patients needing narcotics to help with their pain will be evaluated on an individual basis. For patients who are approved, a Narcotic/Controlled Substance Agreement is required in order to maintain a safe, compliant treatment plan.
