Please read the following regarding our fi nancial policies:
In separation/divorce situations, the individual who initiates services with us is held fi nancially responsible. We do not bill another person or an estranged spouse unless that individual informs us in writing of his or her willingness to pay for services. Even when another party or estranged spouse is billed, the person initiating treatment is ultimately responsible should the other party fail to pay.
Please note that our offi ce is very willing to help out with the fi ling of insurance and, in most cases, we will fi le the primary insurance for you and accept the assignment of benefi ts. In the case of secondary insurance, we will gladly assist you in fi ling it but due to the uncertainty of secondary coverage, our offi ce policy is to have secondary insurance benefi ts paid to the patient.
In the event of a denied insurance claim, we will do our best to help you work things out with the insurance company but any insurance dispute is ultimately between the insured and the insurance company. If a claim remains unpaid despite our good faith effort to fi le it, the responsible party is ultimately responsible for payment of the entire account balance - including that part not paid by the insurance company.
I have read and understand the fi nancial policies listed above.
