During the course of the patient's care there

visit. When that occurs, or if the patient has a deductible, or an uncovered
charge, our office will send the patient an invoice for the amount owed.

During the time
you care for your patient many things happen that affect their ability to pay
their portion of the cost. Jobs lost, insurance terminated, other events that
can cause their balances to grow. Every month we will mail the patient a
statement of their account.
If you decide they should have a payment
we will make note of those considerations and make sure you are aware
of the compliance with your agreement.
Each month you receive a detailed list of the
balances owed by your patients, additionally we send a list of the
statements being mailed for your practice.
During the initial insurance verification our
office will make sure any pre-authorization required is opened. Then as
you provide care we will track the usage of the authorization and notify
you ahead of time when you need to request more visits. Additionally we prepare
the forms for your submission.
At the year end we will submit to the plans, any
information they may require for continuing care with existing patients
returning in the new year.
