Goals For Your First and subsequent Visits
Our goal is to keep your insurance or other financial arrangements as simple as possible. In order to accomplish this in a cost-effective manner, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines.
- You are ultimately responsible for payment of charges for services you receive from our office. Certain procedures are non-covered services under all insurance policies; therefore, payment is expected at the time of service.
- If a service is a non-covered service, there is no diagnosis code that will cause your insurance company to pay, you are responsible for payment.
- It is your responsibility to provide us with your current address, telephone number insurance information, and email address at each visit.
- It is your responsibility to contact your insurance carrier to confirm that Dr. Boone is a participant of your plan. If Dr. Boone is not currently on your plan, you will be responsible for payment in full.
- We will only file insurance up to 3 months per claim. At that time, payment is due in full. If your claim is not paid by insurance within 30 days, please contact your insurance carrier to assist us in getting your clam paid. At the 4th month, you account will be turned over to our collection agency Transworld.
- At the time of your visit, please be prepared to pay your co-pay, co-insurance, deductible, or any unpaid portion by your insurance carrier.
