Only Medicare is accept in our practice. Forms of payments are cash or most major credit cards are a primary source of payments for services rendered. Major credit cards are accepted with processing fees.
Alternatively, a superbill may be utilized to assist the client in potential reimbursement for services.
A superbill is a form used by medical practitioners and clinicians that can be quickly completed and submitted to an insurance company or employer for potential reimbursement. A superbill can be prepared for you at the time of an office visit, or if you see your medical practitioner frequently, it can be prepared for you weekly or monthly. The superbill should contain the following elements:
Once you receive your superbill, check it for accuracy (make sure the dates/times of your visit and the amounts you paid are correct). Then simply submit the document to your insurance company for reimbursement. Your insurance company MAY reimburse you depending on the level of coverage you have. Prior to starting work with a clinician who uses superbills, you should contact your insurance company and say, "I want to work with an out-of-network provider, how much will you reimburse me?" The only way to know for sure what your insurance company will pay is to ask them directly, or better yet, get it in writing via fax or email.
Be aware that should you choose to submit a superbill or use health insurance, you are releasing medical information that is protected by law. This means you are waiving some of your rights to privacy and confidentiality. Your insurance company will have and keep a record of your diagnosis as part of your permanent medical file.
