Our office will verify all patient benefits prior to their initial appointment, subsequent appointments and quarterly thereafter for all maternity patients. Every effort is made to secure the correct quote of insurance benefits however this is not a guarantee of benefits. In order to confirm how your insurance will pay for any services please contact your insurance at the customer service telephone number listed on your insurance card.
As a courtesy, our office will file your insurance claim within 2 business days of your service date. You will not receive a statement from our office until your insurance has either paid their portion of the charges or denied payment of the claim. Upon receiving your first statement, the balance is due immediately.
If you are a self pay patient, please keep in mind that we will do our best to advise you of any additional charges. Any lab tests, pap smears, biopsies and blood work will be sent to one of our lab partners. You will be billed directly by the lab at a later date once your insurance has been billed. Please remember that you are fully responsible for any lab work performed by an outside lab as well as for all of our in office charges.
Dr. Deahl's office is committed to providing our patients with quality medical care. In return, we respectfully request that you honor our credit policy.
If you are insured by a Managed Care Plan that specifies a co-pay when you see our physicians, our receptionist will collect your co-pay prior to your visit. We cannot bill patients for co-pays as it violates our contract with your health plan. Furthermore, if you have a commercial insurance with a deductible or coinsurance, we will also collect your responsibility prior to your visit.
