PRICING & FINANCIAL POLICY
WE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE CHOICES ON WHO YOU ENTRUST WITH YOUR FOOT CARE.
WE ARE COMMITTED TO PROVIDING YOU QUALITY PODIATRIC MEDICAL CARE.
Most patients are pleasantly surprised to find out how affordable quality medical care can be when you take out the distraction by most third party insurance requirements and regulations. By keeping things simple, our staff is able to focus on you by giving you the time and delivering the individualized care that our patients need and expect from their doctors.
We welcome you and ask that you consider us even though we may not be contracted with your insurance company or if you have no insurance. We offer a
self-pay option (i.e. cash price)
and payment plans are available. This requires payment on the same day and time that services are rendered. We are able to offer a discounted price on these services because we do not have the costs associated with coding compliance, filing insurance claims, coordinating authorizations or any delays in reiumbursements.
All patients will be requested to acknowledge understanding of our financial policy on their initial visit. Payment is expected at the time services are rendered unless prior arrangements have been made. For your convenience, our office accepts cash, check, debit card, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
