Insurance and Billing
We are a fee-for-service practice; therefore, payment is due at each appointment.
Our physician participates in most private plans and some managed healthcare plans as a gastroenterology specialist. It is the patient’s responsibility to inform the receptionist at the time of making the appointment of his/her insurance plan. It is of utmost importance that accurate insurance information is provided at the time of the appointment. We reserve the right to verify eligibility. Please provide your insurance card and government issued picture identification for verification purposes. Co-payments and deductible, if applicable, will be charged at the time of service.
We are a Medicare participant provider and accept assignment. We file insurance claims as a courtesy, and we will file a secondary insurance if applicable. The patient is responsible for the yearly deductible and the 20% of allowable fees unless a secondary insurance covers this. We are not providers of Florida Medicaid Program.
Some procedures and diagnoses are not covered by some insurance plans. If this should occur, the patient will be informed and asked to sign a waiver stating that he/she understands and will be responsible for any amount not covered by their insurance.
HMO/Managed Care plans may require an authorization to see a specialist. It is the patient’s responsibility to acquire the initial authorization for the first visit and subsequent follow visits. We request that the patient brings it at the time of the visit or make arrangements with the primary care physician to have it faxed to our office. Our scheduling staff member will handle all authorizations for procedures.
