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?

It can take from 15 to 45 days to obtain payment from an insurance carrier.​

​Why am I getting bills from the physician?

​Each physician who provides professional services will send you a separate bill from his or her office. These physicians will include:

- Dr. Patricia O'hare
- other physicians who conducted tests and procedures
- consulting physicians chosen by your primary physician to   read and interpret test results.

 You will be responsible for paying these bills as well.

​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.
