If your insurance determines that a particular service is “not reasonable or necessary” under their program standards, your insurance may deny payment for that service.

All Medications and Injections are the Patient’s Responsibility, which includes, Pyridoxine, Vitamin B12 and B Complex, Terramycin, Penicillin, Cephazolin, Demerol, Talwin, Phenergan, Testosterone, Cortisone, Hepatitis B, Flu, Pneumonia, PPD, and Allergy injections.

In order to provide EVERY patient with the most optimal treatment schedule, we have a formal “same day” cancellation and “no show” policy. A $10 charge will be billed for same day cancellation and a $25 charge will be billed for failure to show up for a scheduled appointment without prior notice. We request that anyone wishing to cancel a scheduled appointment do so before 5:00pm the day prior to the appointment. Cancellations made after 5:00pm on the day prior to treatment will necessitate a $10 fee. Failure to show up to an appointment without ANY prior notice will necessitate a $25 fee.
Due to the increase in number, complexity, and time required to write, call, or fax prescriptions or prior authorizations to pharmacies or prescription service companies it has become necessary for us to charge for these services. In addition a charge will be assessed for replacement of lost or misplaced lab slips, referrals, diagnostic slips, and prescriptions. We reserve the right to charge for all forms completed for prior authorization, medical supplies, and insurance inquiries. An additional charge will be assessed to fax these requests.
Copies of the above mention fees are available upon request.

We feel these policies are necessary in order to best serve all patients scheduling needs as well as our productivity and time management demands. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
We are committed to providing you with the best possible care and would be happy to discuss our professional fees with you at any time. Your clear understanding of our financial policy is important to our professional relationship. Please ask if you have any questions about our fees, financial policy, or your financial responsibility. If you do not have insurance, we expect payment in full for all treatments at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made. We accept cash, checks, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover. New patients will be required to pay by cash or credit card only, for the first six months.
If you have insurance, we will help you receive maximum benefits. Your insurance claim will ONLY be completed and submitted if we are provided with all pertinent insurance company information. It is your responsibility to verify that your policy is in force on your date of service. Otherwise, you are responsible for payment at the time of service. Insurance is an agreement between you and your insurance company. We file insurance claims as a courtesy to you, our patient. We will not become involved in disputes between you and your insurance company regarding deductibles, co-payments, covered charges, secondary insurances, “usual and customary” charges, etc., other than to supply necessary factual information. Deductibles and/or co-payments/co-insurances are required at the time of service. You are responsible for the prompt payment of your account. If payment is not received from your insurance company within ninety (90) days, the balance on the account becomes your responsibility. By signing the form below, you hereby authorize The Family Health Center to bill your insurance company for the services rendered. You further authorize payment of all medical benefits for these services to be paid to The Family Health Center directly.
