Financial & Insurance

We accept Medicare, most HMO’s, most PPO’s and other insurance carriers.

Please check your insurance company’s provider directory to see if your physician is listed.

For insured patients, we request only payment of the insurance deductible, and co-payment at the time service is rendered. If this is not possible, please notify our office, who will work with you to develop a payment plan that is best suited to your budget.

If your insurance carrier required referral forms, please make certain that you obtain the necessary forms from your primary care or other referring physician prior to your visit.

As a service to you, our office staff will complete and submit the required claims to your insurance carrier for all your fees.

If you have any questions regarding fees or your insurance coverage, please call our Billing Department. We are always available and happy to discuss your account with you.

For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, checks and cash.

Please also be aware that your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. You are financially responsible to Gastroenterology Institute for non-payment of any fees not covered by your insurance.

You will receive a bill for the balance due after an insurance payment, which will be due upon receipt. If you need to make payment arrangements, please contact our billing department ahead of time to make these arrangements.

Any unpaid balance will be subject to a finance charge of 1.5% per month (18% APR) commencing 60 days from the date of service.

If your account goes to a collection agency, you will be responsible for all cost of collections, including attorney’s fees, court costs and any interest allowable by law (if incurred).
