Office Policies

sandpoint-nurse-practitioner-policies

  1. Payment for service is due at the time of service unless payment arrangements have been approved in advance by our practice manager. We accept credit cards, checks, cash and money orders. We are happy to process your insurance claim, and it is your responsibility to provide us with full and accurate information at the time of service.
  2. We accept most standard insurances, medicare and limited medicaid.
  3. Our relationship is with you and not your insurance company. Your contract is with your insurance company and we are not a party to that contract. Filing insurance claims is a courtesy that we extend to our patients; all charges are your responsibility. Co-pays are due at the time of service.
  4. Insurance companies use “usual and customary” charges when setting fee limitations. The term suggests but does not necessarily reflect the average fees charged by Doctors in the community. Please be aware that some insurance companies will pay a claim percentage based on the “usual and customary” not on your actual charges. The difference between what we bill and what they pay is your responsibility.
  5. Private pay accounts are expected to pay at the time of service. Pre-arrangements may be made with my practice manager prior to the appointment. Patients may be dismissed from the practice for failure to follow the financial agreement.
  6. Delinquent accounts will be referred to a collection agency at our discretion. If our collection agency or if we take any legal action, the non-prevailing party agrees to pay the legal costs.
  7. A $25.00 fee will be charged for repetitive (3 or more) appointments missed without notice.
