When should I confirm plan coverage?

Always confirm our practice’s network status with your specific plan prior to your appointment. All providers in our practice may not be contracted with all plans. We welcome patients with out-of-network insurance or no insurance as well.

Can I get an itemized billing statement?

If a bundled package was purchased, we cannot itemize. By definition, a bundle is a set of services offered for one all-inclusive price. We can provide an invoice that lists the services included in the bundled rate.

Why do I have to pay ahead of time?
While we understand it’s hard to plan for unexpected medical issues, our rates are fair and transparent. We strive to provide as much information up-front as possible, so you do not receive large surprise bills after your care.

We require payment in advance because the care we offer is expensive to provide. Our physicians use expensive equipment and supplies to diagnose and treat patients. Our surgery center must purchase expensive implants for most surgeries before the surgery is performed. We incur those expenses before you receive the care, so it’s important for us to recover that cost.

We offer Care Credit to patients who need assistance with the pre-payment requirement. We can offer a pre-payment plan allowing you to pre-pay installments toward a surgery date in the future.
