OFFICE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES.
All patients must recognize that they are responsible for the charges incurred for physical therapy. We will attempt to verify what your insurance benefits are. However, quotation of benefits from your insurance company does not guarantee payment. We will submit billing to your insurance company free of charge. In the event your insurance carrier does not submit payment for services rendered, a statement will be issued to you for payment.
Missed appointments are a loss for everyone. Cancellations without adequate notice cannot be filled and take valuable time from other patients, thus they are subject to a $25 late cancel/no show fee. Therefore, we require that you notify us 24 hours in advance if you are unable to attend a scheduled appointment. If you are 15 minutes late or greater, the therapist will have the option of seeing you or rescheduling. Checks that are returned for any reason are subject to a $35 service fee.

MEDICARE PATIENTS: We bill our standard fees to Medicare, they pay 80% of their allowable fees, and the difference is billed to your secondary insurance.
