FINANCIAL POLICY We have found that communication with our patients regarding financial policy assists in providing the best services to you. Please take the time to read the following before you sign. COMMERCIAL/ HMO/ PPO PLANS: Our staff is pleased to bill your insurance company as a courtesy to you after your benefits have been verified and authorization is obtained (if required by your plan). It is the patients responsibility to remit any deductible, co-pay, co-insurance or non covered charge amounts at the time of service. Should you choose to bill your own insurance, the billing office will provide you with an itemized list of services rendered during each appointment, however, full payment will be required at the time of each visit. If your insurance company fails to pay within 60 days of the date of billing, we will expect you to pay the balance of you bill and seek reimbursement from your insurance company. WORKERS COMPENSATION: All pre-authorized bills will be sent directly to the Workers Compensation carrier. In the event that your claim is denied, you will be responsible for payment. We will gladly file any other insurance carrier as a courtesy to you. MEDICARE: This is a Medicare certified facility and we will file claims directly to Medicare. You will be expected to notify us of any other forms of insurance which might be primary to Medicare for treatment being provided such as but not limited to Auto Insurance, Workers Comp., Group Insurance, Black Lung etc. In order to determine if another payer might be responsible, you will be required to complete a Medicare Questionnaire. SECONDARY INSURANCE: As a courtesy to you, we will file your supplemental carrier for you. Payment will be expected from you if you supplemental insurance does not pay your deductible, co-insurance or co-pays within 30 days of filing. PRIVATE PAY: Full payment is expected when services are rendered to continue treatment.
AGREEMENT TO PAY I understand and agree that I am responsible and liable for payment of all charges assessed for professional services rendered. I have read and understand the financial policy detailed above. I understand that I am primarily responsible for all charges incurred regardless of my existing insurance coverage. In the event that my insurance forwards payment to me, I will deliver such payment to you. I understand that I am responsible for meeting my insurance deductibles, co-pays, co-insurance and non-covered services at the time of service. Should my account become past due, the balance becomes my responsibility and is immediately due and payable. In the event that my unpaid balance is referred for outside collections, I will be responsible for all collection and legal costs. My signature authorizes release of any medical information necessary to process my claim and assigns payment of benefits to Renewal Rehabilitation, Inc.
