Billing and Insurance

  • We will submit insurance claims for you and provide you with a copy of your bill. All patients with the exception of Medicare patients are expected to pay for the balance in full at the time service is rendered either by credit card (MC, Visa, American Express) or by check. You will be reimbursed directly by your insurance company for a portion of the charge according to their “out of network fee”.

  • We do accept Medicare assignment and will submit all bills directly to Medicare and your secondary insurance company.

  • Some services that we provide are not typically covered by insurance such as Botox (please check with your carrier about benefits)
