We require payment on the day of service. We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard and personal checks. A fee will be issued in the event of insufficient funds.
We are a low volume office, offering our patients comprehensive care, which limits our ability to work within the limitations of most contractual requirements for insurance, therefore our practitioners work as “out of network” providers.
- After payment is made to our office, the bills can be submitted to PPO insurance plans as “out of network,” and will be reimbursed according to each individual insurance plan. Please contact your insurance company for information on your coverage.
- We are not providers for any HMO insurance. We are not Medicare providers.
OUT OF NETWORK:
We are an out of network provider, however, if you have insurance and your insurance includes out of network benefits and you met your deductible you may be eligible for a reimbursement but there is no guarantee. We are a cash basis practice and accept major credit cards, CareCredit, check, and/or cash. Please contact your insurance provider to find out your benefits eligibility.
INSURANCE PROCESSING: ($25/CLAIM)
If your PPO insurance does in fact include out-of-network benefits, our medical biller, Connie Davis, can electronically submit your visit to your insurance on your behalf. The fee is $25/claim. If you would like to submit it to your insurance yourself, we can generate a Superbill receipt for you after your visit for you to submit to your insurance. This is at no additional charge.
We have opted out with Medicare, no medical visits or services can be submitted to Medicare or Supplementary insurances.
Some of the laboratories we work with accept insurance. If the doctor orders labs during your medical visit, then our nurses will inform you on which laboratories are in-network with your insurance plan and you have the option of billing through your insurance, and what the insurance does not cover will then be directly billed to you.
The Akasha Center offers in-house insurance billing services at no extra cost to you. Our in-house billing specialists will send your claim directly to your insurance company, providing you with the best possible opportunity for reimbursement.
