Terms of payments
Payments of all copays, deductibles, and/or coinsurance are due at the time of service. As a service to you, our office will bill your insurance company. Being a participating provider with most insurance companies, the insurance companies require that we collect these fees, as they are terms of your health care contract. Additionally, patients are ultimately responsible for all balances.
For your convenience, we accept credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and Debit Cards. We offer Care Credit for cosmetic procedures.
Due to the constant changes in health insurance it is your responsibility to know your health coverage. If you should have any questions regarding if a certain procedure is covered, it is to your advantage to call your insurance company and find out exactly what your contract covers. Their customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.
