Copayments represent the portion of the office visit not covered by your insurance. Insurance companies expect that copayments will be paid at the time of service.
Our office policy has always been that patients with private insurance (or health plans with which we do not participate) pay for office visits at the time of service. As a courtesy, we will be glad to submit the medical claim for you to your insurance company so that you can be reimbursed directly.
If your insurance company requires a referral for specialty care, please be sure that we have approved the referral beforehand.
