Frequently Asked Questions
Medicare goes by a specified dollar amount. If medically necessary, a patient is able to be seen beyond this limit.
Our office accepts Molina, Meridian, Mclaren Medicaid, and United Healthcare Medicaid. However, we don’t accept straight Medicaid.
Our office, like any other office, does try to collect payment up front. However, all circumstances are different. Some patients may need to make payment arrangements. If so, payment arrangements will be discussed between the patient and me. Different payment options include: cash, check, credit card, and Care Credit.
To determine whether a referral is needed depends on the type of insurance. If an insurance does require a referral, our office will contact the patient’s PCP to try to obtain this. If an insurance doesn’t require a referral, this is considered Direct Access. What Direct Access means, is that a patient is allowed 10 visits for 21 days.
This will vary depending on the insurance. When it comes to having a deductible or coinsurance, the amount we collect is an approximated amount. Treatment may vary visit to visit as well; this will then change the amount of what is billed and patient responsibility. If a patient does have any financial responsibility, they have the option for me to contact them prior to their evaluation. With a deductible and coinsurance, the amount per visit may be less or more. If a patient has a copay, this amount will be the same per visit.
