Managed Care has become a growing healthcare trend in our society. To better serve you, the following guidelines have been developed for our office.

YOU are responsible for:

  • Having your insurance enrollment card available at every visit.
  • Providing the necessary information required for primary filing of your claim.
  • Providing a copy of your most recent EOB indicating if you have met your deductible.
  • Pay your required amount at the time of every visit.
  • Notify us of any change in your managed care/insurance plan and any change in benefits.
  • Contesting non-covered claims with your managed care/insurance and re-filing if you desire.
  • Filing of secondary managed care/insurance if you desire.
  • Full payment within 30 days of all services transferred to patient responsibility, even if secondary filing by you is pending.

CHILDREN’S CLINIC is responsible for:

  • Filing your claim once with the managed care/insurance company that you have given us as your primary coverage.
  • Posting payments received to your account and if there is a valid credit balance due you, it will be applied to your next visit or refunded to you upon your request.
  • If the Explanation of Benefits (EOB) indicates that there is no payable amount from managed care/insurance, the amount will be transferred to your responsibility.
  • Following up with your managed care/insurance if no payment and no denial is received.
  • Review all delinquent balances for collection service action.
