Billing & Insurance at Dinesen & Associates OBGYN and Infertility
We participate with many local and national insurance plans, but it is your responsibility to understand whether your insurance has limits on the doctors you can see, or the services you receive. Insurance plans are negotiated between insurance companies and employers, therefore everyone’s medical coverage is not the same. Individual coverage may require co-insurance, co-pays, or deductibles. We require that these amounts due be paid at the time of service, as per your insurance carrier contract. Please bring your current insurance card to every office visit so that we may verify your insurance coverage.
Participating Health Plans
Our practice currently participates with the following insurance plans:
Non-Participating Insurance Companies
We participate with most insurance carriers. If we do not participate with your insurance company, we will submit claims for you as a courtesy. If the insurance company does not pay within 45-days, you will be responsible for payment of all charges.
In the event that your health insurance plan determines a service to be “not covered”, you will be responsible for the complete charge. Should this occur, we will bill you and payment is due upon receipt of that statement.
Co-pays, Deductibles and Co-Insurance are a contract between you and your insurance carrier, and are due at the time of service. Some contracts require more than one co-pay on the same date of service if you have two different types of exams or procedures done. If your co-pay is not paid at the time of service, there will be a $15 billing fee added to your charge unless prior arrangements have been made with our office.
If your insurance requires pre-approval or referrals to our practice, it is your responsibility to make sure that referral has been made.
We will complete one set of insurance forms for you. Please allow 7-10 business days for completion of disability, compensation or insurance forms.
