Please review our Payment Policy, should you have any questions, we may discuss prior to your exam. Insurance: We participate in most insurance plans, including Medicare. If you do not have insurance or are not insured by a plan we are contracted with, payment in full is due at the time services are provided unless prior arrangements have been made and agreed to in advance. Proof of Insurance/Referral Forms: We may require that you provide us with a copy of your driver’s license and valid insurance card to provide proof of insurance. If we are not provided with the correct information, you may be held responsible for payment. If you do not have your insurance card, you will be responsible for payment at the time of service. Once we obtain your insurance information, we will bill the insurance company and refund any overpayments once the claim has been paid by your insurance plan. Inform us of any insurance changes made after this signed agreement/date of service. Insurance carriers have specific timely filing guidelines and pre-authorization requirements for certain services. If revised insurance information is not provided to us within insurances’ timely filing limits, you will be required to pay for services in full. If prior authorization was required for services already received and your claim is denied for lack of authorization, you will be required to pay for services in full. Co-Payments, Deductibles, & Coinsurance: You agree to pay all co-payments, deductibles, and co-insurance at the time your exams are performed as required by your insurance plan. A time of service payment is an estimate of the amount due. The final amount due cannot be calculated until the claim is processed by your insurance company. Additionally, the estimate of the amount due at time of service may change over time due to deductible charges processed for other medical services rendered. Non-Covered Services: In some instances, the services you receive may not be covered or considered medically necessary by Medicare or other insurance plans. In these instances, you will be required to pay for these services in full at the time of your exam. Medicare patients may be required to complete a separate Advance Beneficiary Notice form in order for services to be rendered. Assignment: By signing this form, you agree to assign all insurance benefits to SimonMed Imaging for services performed and authorize SimonMed Imaging to submit a claim to Medicare or my insurance plan. We will submit your claim(s) to your insurance plan and will provide you with reasonable assistance to get the insurance plan to pay the claim(s). Collections: Once an account is placed in collection status, all future services must be paid in full at the time of service. There is a $25.00 fee for any returned checks. Patient payment policies may not be applicable in certain cases, including but not limited to workers compensation cases.
