Our goal is to provide all of our patients the highest quality surgical care at the most reasonable cost. We can keep our focus on quality care best when we keep our bookkeeping and collection costs to a minimum. Therefore, payment is due in full at the time service is rendered unless prior arrangements have been made.
If you carry insurance we ask for a partial payment of the full fee. The portion due is reviewed with you on the day of your consultation. If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at (661) 327-2051. Many times, a simple telephone call will clear any misunderstandings.
For you convenience we accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, cash, and personal checks. We also have Care Credit, a quick financing plan, available.
Patient Responsibility (with insurance):
We are happy to help you by billing your insurance for you. The portion of your balance that we are asking you to pay on the day of your surgery is a percentage of your total balance, and in no way reflects an estimated amount that your insurance will cover. You are responsible for payment in full of any balance remaining after your insurance has been paid and we require payment in full of your remaining balance while you are in negotiation with your insurance company. If they pay an additional amount we will send a refund check to you the day the additional payment is received. Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.
We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.
*There will be a $25.00 charge on all returned checks.
