Question about your bill //

Should I contact my insurance company before making an appointment?

In general, it is a good idea to review your insurance policy and benefits before receiving medical services. In some cases—for instance, if you are coming in for laboratory tests or a chest x-ray—you may not need to notify your insurance company. However, for many other services you may need a referral from your primary physician

 

Why am I getting bills from physicians?

 

Some insurances, including Medicare, have deductibles that must be met at the beginning of the year, regardless of which physician you are seeing, for whatever reason.  You may also have a co-insurance amount in addition to a co-pay amount.  This is usually billed after the visit has been settled by the insurance company.  A handful of companies do not reimburse for manipulative treatment very well!  



 

Is there a list of insurance that the doctors accept?

 

The TIOPA.org website has a listing of currently accepted insurances.  You may have to check your insurance to see if the doc's are in or out of network. Drs. Boone and Schmitz are very similar, however we recommend checking.
