The Smell and Taste Clinic will bill your in or out-of-network insurance company for your initial office visit. Any co-pays and/or deductibles will be due at the time of service. Although eligibility has been checked with your insurance company prior to your office visit, this is NOT a guarantee of payment. Your insurance company determines benefits once the claim has been received and reviewed.
If your insurance company was billed and payment is not received within 45 days, the balance will be transferred to the patientâ€™s responsibility. This office cannot accept responsibility for collecting your insurance claim or for negotiating a settlement on a disputed claim. Any portion of the bill not paid, or denied, by the insurance carrier, will be the patientâ€™s responsibility.
If you have Medicare and a supplemental or secondary insurance carrier, please call Medicare and advise them of your secondary or supplemental information.
