Patients with Insurance: It is not always possible to determine patient eligibity or provide in-network status. Sometimes, it takes an intial visit until these details are clearer. Hence, you might be charged a fee for the visit upto equivalent of self pay.
Patients may have copays, deductibles and/or coinsurance. Note that these amounts may vary depending on your insurance plan. An active credit card has to be on file to bill the amounts at the time of checking for the appointment. Cash or check is also acceptable. Failure to pay may lead to cancellation of the appointment.
If sleep studies are ordered, the pertinent sleep lab determines eligibility and bills for the technical component whereas the sleep lab or the interpreting sleep physician (likely Dr. Adury) will be billing for the professional component.
You might receive monthly statements if any fees are due, with links to payment.
If you have any questions about your dues, a phone number will be provided, so you can call.
