We ask that you be prepared to pay your co-pay and/or deductible at time of services rendered. Your insurance can be a big help in getting the care you need and we will help to assure that you receive the maximum benefits possible. However, the contract between your employer and the insurance company will not affect your responsibility for full payment of any fees. If your insurance doesn’t pay what we expect, then you are responsible for any balance.
