Fees, Billing and Insurance Information

It is the patient's responsibility to provide the business office with accurate insurance policy information. Please bring your insurance card or Medicaid or Medicare card to your appointment. Patients with supplemental insurance need to provide policy information to the business office. We will submit claims to your insurance company as a courtesy; however, the account balance is ultimately the patient's responsibility.

Please call 911 in case of emergency or proceed directly to the hospital emergency department.
