Financial Policy

Most insurance is accepted. Please remember that medical insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not a substitute for payment. Some insurance companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures, and others pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance or any other balance not paid for by your insurance.

Co-payments for HMO’s, PPO’s and other managed care plans must be paid at the time of service. Balance billing patients for their co-pays is a violation of our managed care contracts and will not be allowed. If the patient does not have the co-pay at the time of visit, the patient may reschedule the appointment in order to meet the co-payment requirement.

If an account is assigned to an attorney for collection and/or suit, the prevailing party shall be entitled to reasonable attorney’s fees and costs of collection. An account is considered delinquent after 30 days from the date of service or from the date services were denied or paid by the insurance carrier.


If you feel that you or someone you know may need podiatry treatment, information, or surgery, please contact us Monday through Friday, by phone, from 8.00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. to set up an appointment.
