Insurance and billing

The balance due is the patient’s responsibility. Payment will be requested from you if your insurance company has not paid within 60 days. Cash, Check, Money Order, Cashier’s Check, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express are accepted methods of payment via ePay.

- What is your yearly deductible
- Has your deductible been met
- If you have a copay for an ASC
- What is your co-insurance
