Insurance and Billing

As a new patient you will meet with our patient account representatives and complete a patient information form and verify your insurance information. Please bring your insurance identification card(s) with you. A photocopy will be placed in your billing file. If you are covered by more than one insurance company, please let us know which company is the primary carrier. This will help to avoid any delays in receiving benefits. If there is any change in your health coverage, please contact the office to update your records.

We participate with most major insurance companies and will submit claims to your carrier on your behalf. Medicaid patients are welcome. We ask that you bring us a referral from your Primary Care Physician if your plan requires this. We also accept Medicare assignment, however you will be responsible for the deductible and your twenty percent co-payment for Medicare’s allowed charges for physician care, scans and treatments. If you have a Medicare Supplement Insurance we will file those claims for you also. If you belong to an HMO or PPO plan, please verify that our physicians are in the plan before your treatment begins. Also, please inform our office if pre-certification is necessary with your plan.

Some insurance companies require you to use a specific laboratory or to obtain referrals or pre-authorization for office visits, hospital admissions, and treatment. It is your responsibility to obtain the initial referral. If you need assistance with your insurance requirements, our staff will make every effort to help you.

We accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover Card for payments on your account. We will be happy to assist you in developing a payment plan.

Please call our patient accounts representative at 701-222-6100 or 800-248-5511 if you have questions or need assistance in coordinating and filing claims with your insurance company. Please be assured that your confidentiality will  be respected at all times.
