Questions About Your Bill?

What billing or insurance information will I receive?

​You will receive a copy of your bill.  After your insurance has paid, we'll provide you with a statement of your account.

How long will it take to get things settled with the insurance company?

Generally, it takes from 45 to 60 days to obtain payment from an insurance carrier.​

​Why am I getting bills from the Doctor?

​Each doctor who provides professional services will send you a separate bill from his or her office. These doctors can include:

- your own doctor
- other doctors who conducted tests and procedures
- consulting doctros chosen by your primary doctor to read and interpret test results.

These doctors may include specialists in anesthesiology, cardiology, emergency medicine, nuclear medicine, pathology, radiology, or urodynamics. You will be responsible for paying these bills as well.

​I received a notice that my insurance company has paid on my bill -- but I can't understand how they calculated their payment amount. Do you know?

​If we have received the information from your insurance company, we will be glad to share it with you. However, for answers to any questions about insurance payments, deductibles, or co-payments, you generally need to check with your insurance company.
