Health insurance is designed to help you meet the costs of medical service, but the contract is between you and the insurance company. The responsibility of payment is yours, and you are responsible for any amount not covered by your plan. It is your responsibility to know the details of your insurance coverage - well visits, sick visits, immunizations, precertification requirements, deductibles, co-payments, etc. You are responsible for payment of your deductible amount and for payment of any amount that the insurance does not pay or does not cover. If you are on a PPO plan, HMO plan, or CHAMPUS, you must pay your co-payment amount at the time of your visit. You must pay for services until your deductible is met. Immunizations must be paid for at the time they are given if your insurance plan does not cover immunizations. Please help us serve you better by keeping us informed of changes in your address, telephone number, and insurance coverage. Our office will be happy to answer any questions or to help you complete your forms when there are problems.
