Fees and Billing Policy

As a courtesy, our office will bill your insurance company for appointment and inpatient charges. Our contract with your insurance plan requires us to collect copays at the time of service. 

Ultimately, it is your responsibility to make sure your account is paid in a timely fashion, including copays and deductibles. It is always a good idea to double-check with your particular plan to ensure that the doctors are approved providers before an office visit and immunizations are covered by your plan.

For balances remaining unpaid for more than 60 days, a $5.00 billing fee will be charged each month. Please contact our billing office if there are problems, and they will make every attempt to work with you. 

If NO attempt is made to pay on your account, we will have no choice but to terminate our relationship and refer the matter to a collection agency. We accept cash, checks, Visa and Mastercard.

You will be required to provide us with the guarantor on your child's account with us. The guarantor is the person assuming financial responsibility for all payments. Typically, the guarantor is the individual that the child lives with (in the case of separated or divorced parents) or the policyholder on the insurance policy.

Please direct all billing questions to our office manager, Kim O'Brien, at 815-463-8994.
