Insurance & Billing Procedures  

We will file your insurance for you but want you to understand that the final responsibility for your charges is yours. Copayments and deductibles are due at the time of service. We gladly accept cash, checks, and credit cards. Please check with your insurance carrier to see if services are an in network. If your insurance requires a referral from your primary care physician, it is your responsibility to contact your primary care doctor and get the referral to us prior to your appointment date. If you are seen and the insurance denies payment for lack of referral, the payment responsibility is yours.

If you have questions regarding your physician's bill, please call our billing department, Monday Thru Friday, between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm at 606-677-2913 extension 27.
