We Bill Your Insurance

We participate with most insurance providers in Central Georgia.  We will directly bill your insurance plan for you.  Prior to your appointment, please confirm with your insurance company that services provided by our practice are covered.  Inpatient hospital stays and some outpatient services may require pre-authorization.  It is the patient’s responsibility to confirm proper authorization or pre-certification has been obtained.  Your claim may be denied without such authorization.

Once we process your insurance claim, your patient balance will be due upon receipt of your statement.  The patient is financially responsible for payment if their insurance company denies payment or does not pay the entire balance.
