Normally we bill your insurance company direct as a courtesy to you. After we bill them, we ask that if you haven't heard from them in 30 days that you follow-up with a phone call to them. The person who signs the assignment of benefits at the time of registration is the person responsible for the bill.
You will have the option to pay your account in cash, check or credit card (Visa or MasterCard).
We want you to be aware that you may receive FOUR separate bills for your surgery/procedure.
