We would like to take a moment to welcome you to our office and to assure you that you will receive the very best care available for your injury. In order to familiarize you with the financial policy of our office, I would like to explain how your medical bills will be handled.
If you were involved in an auto accident in your own vehicle, we will bill the medical payments portion or Personal Injury Protection portion of your insurance policy to cover the treatment charges incurred in our office.
MED PAY: If you were a passenger in another vehicle, the insurance company which insures the automobile may be billed for your medical services incurred. PIP: If you were a passenger in another vehicle, and you own a car which has PIP coverage, the insurance company which
carries your policy will be responsible to pay your medical bills. PARTY: If another vehicle has caused the accident, we will only bill your automobile MedPay or PIP policy for coverage, this office does not bill 310 PARTY claims.
It is also to your advantage for our office to bill your own health insurance policy for your medical services, providing your policy does not state otherwise.
If you hire an attorney to represent you, it is our office policy to have your attorney sign a Doctor's Lien. This will guarantee direct payment to our office for any unpaid balance upon settlement of your case. We retain the right to first submit all charges to your private and/or auto insurance policy for payment. Further, this office does not discount or reduce the amount of your balance based upon the outcome of your settlement,
RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT:
As a courtesy to you, we will gladly submit your charges to your insurance company(ies) and/or your attomey; however, all services rendered by this office are charged directly to you, and ultimately, you are personally responsible for payment of these charges, regardless of any insurance reimbursement or settlement you may or may not receive.
Once again, we welcome you to our office. We hope that this has answered any questions that you might have about our financial arrangements. If, at any time, you have further questions about your care, please, don't hesitate to ask.
