Financial and Insurance

Your insurance may require that a copay be paid at the time of your office visit. Portions of the bill may not be paid by your insurance. Our billing service will submit your claim to your insurance company. After all insurance obligations have been paid, you will receive an invoice for the remaining balance. This balance is your responsibility to pay. Invoices sent from our office are due in full on receipt.

Should a copay be required by your insurance, it will be collected when you check in.

We accept cash, checks, credit/debit cards, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay.

All outstanding balances on account are due at check in.
