Billing Policies

Billing Policies

  1. Co-payments are due at the time of service. Co-pays are required based on insurance contracts and cannot be waived as SSP would be in violation of our business contracts with those insurance companies

  2. Similarly, if you have an insurance plan with a deductible, those costs will be assessed and billed to you as required of us by your insurance contract.

  3. We accept cash, personal checks, and credit card payments, including FSA and HSA.

  4. Surcharges will be assessed for returned checks.

  5. When we bill using a credit card, please know that we use a safe, secure link through Instamed. We do not store your credit card information in our office.

  6. Please bring your insurance card to every office visit.

  7. Certain services are not covered by insurance and are charged the following fees:

    (a) Missed sick appointments (if you do not call the office to notify us): $25

    (b) Missed well visit (if not canceled the day before the schedule

         appointment): $25

    (c) Missed consultation (e.g. mental health or behavior; if not canceled the

         day before the appointment): $25

    (d) Returned check: $30

    (e) Health forms: $25 annual fee per patient covers all forms required in that

         year (maximum fee per family is $50). Alternatively, if you think you will

         only have one form in a given year, you can pay $15 for that one form

         only; however, if you then need more forms in the same year, you can pay

         an additional $10 per form up to the $25 per patient annual fee.

    (f) Transfer of records: no fee for first transfer to a new doctor or to parent

        when moving out of area; $25 for records for home reference, social or

        legal issues.

    8. Effective 3/23/2020, we will begin telemedicine visits. They will be billed just like an office visit, including submission to insurance and            co-pays (if required).
