We regard your understanding of our financial policies as an essential element of the care we provide for you. To help us, please bring your insurance card at every visit and show it to the receptionist to avoid being billed incorrectly.
Coverage of Benefits
We try our best to help our patients stay up -to-date and aware of insurance benefits. However it is your responsibility to know what coverage your insurance provides.
Some questions you may want to ask your insurance company are:
• Is Brentwood Medical Group a participating provider or is it out of network?
• Are well-visits covered along with preventive lab work?
• Are vaccinations covered?
• Do I have a deductible? If so, how much?
• What lab can I use?
Payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. A receipt will be given for all payments. We recommend that you keep all payment receipts.
Co-pays are collected during the check-in process. Any co-pay not paid at the time of service is charged a $25 service fee. Co-insurance, deductibles, and non-covered items are insured’s/patients financial responsibility.
Self-Pay patients/No insurance
We offer a 10% discount on all services for those without health insurance.
Patients will be asked to keep their accounts current at all times. If a balance is due on the account for which a statement has been mailed, we will request payment at the time of visit. Payment arrangements can be made on any balance of more than $100.
Motor Vehicle Accident Visit
Please inform the staff if your visit is due to a motor vehicle accident. Please provide your auto insurance information and as a courtesy, we will bill for you.
Refunds are issued to the appropriate party. Patient refunds will not be processed until all active and past due charges are paid in full. Refunds less than $10 will be credited to your account.
We submit claims to many participating insurance companies. Any outstanding charges deemed as patient responsibility will be billed to you. If payment is not received within 30 days of a billing statement, or a payment plan has not been arranged, you may be sent to collections
Our billing department makes every effort to contact the responsible party to help them make payment in a convenient and responsible manner. If there is any difficulty with payment, please talk to our billing supervisor so that we may work with you.
We are not a credit agency and therefore cannot carry your debt to our practice. If payment is not made in a timely manner, our collection process will go into effect and we will no longer be able to schedule well care visits.
Any unpaid balance after 120 days of the date of service may be referred to a collection agency. Accounts referred to a collection agency will be subject to an additional fee of 30% of the total balance due. This will impact your credit rating.
