Questions About Your Bill
What billing or insurance information will I receive?
You will receive a copy of your bill. After your insurance has paid, we'll provide you with a monthly statement of your account.
How long will it take to get things settled with the insurance company?
Generally, it takes from 45 to 60 days to obtain payment from an insurance carrier.
Why am I getting bills from your office?
Our office will bill for services rendered and for any obligation you may have once your insurance company has paid what they are obligated to under your insurance plan and agreement with the insurer (copays, deductibles and certain non-covered services may be directly billable to you based on your plan)
In the event our office sends you for testing outside of our office, we always try to make sure that we are sending you for insurance covered services, HOWEVER we cannot be 100% responsible for billing that may come directly from an outside office and as insurance rules and regulations change time to time work outside of this office always remains between your insurance company, yourself and the outside entity.
We cannot be responsible for authorizations that were obtained for and through your insurance yet in fact, for whatever reason, you were not actually insured at the time of service (this can and does happen more often then we would all expect). Remember that in the end while we put our patient care first, we are also not a government agency nor a non-profit and often the fees we charge the insurance company just help us with operating expenses - we appreciate your understanding regarding this.
I received a notice that my insurance company has paid on my bill -- but I can't understand how they calculated their payment amount. Do you know?
If we have received any such information from your insurance company, we'll be glad to share it with you. However, for answers to any questions about insurance payments, deductibles, or co-payments, you generally need to check with your insurance company.
Medical services are provided and billed by Five Towns Neurology, PC which may be billed as Five Towns Neurology & Physical Medicine, Village Open MRI, Woodmere Sleep Center, Spotlight PT and/or Five Towns Neuroscience Research.
We participate in most all of the major health insurance plans in the region.
If for any reason your plan is not listed we encourage you to call our office as many plans change on a regular basis and are updated constantly. in most instances we can see patients on a fee-for-service basis and provide you with a bill/receipt to submit to your insurer which often may be paid for in full.
Please be aware that with any health plans, there may be deductibles and copayments for which you could be responsible.
