Child Care Limited Financial Policy

As insurance coverage decreases and the patient's financial responsibility increases, we understand the need for clear communication of our financial policies. In order to better serve the needs of our patients we have added valuable tools to help you meet your increased medical expenses.

1. We will continue to look to insurance companies for their payment, and assist you in receiving proper reimbursement for our services. Unfortunately, insurance no longer covers services fully and most current insurance plans chosen by our patients require significant out-of-pocket expenses to be paid by the patient.

2. We have increased our staff and they have undergone considerable training to be able to communicate with you and answer your questions. All employees utilize voice mail to insure that you can leave a complete message when you call they can investigate your account before they return your call.

3. It is your responsibility to verify that all requirements of your insurance plan are met. We will assist you with precertification for procedures ordered by our office, but it is ultimately your responsibility to verify whether any care you receive is covered by your insurance plan. This office is not responsible for the expense of treatment, which is not paid by your insurance. With continuous changes in coverage, it is important for you to verify your benefits and be aware of all restrictions and expenses of your plan.

4. In accordance with the requirements of most insurance contracts, we will require payment of office copayments at the time of service. Any person bringing in your child for treatment or service will be required to pay the necessary copayments at the time of service. Your insurance company will be notified when this contractual payment is not paid at the time of the appointment. If copayments are not kept current, it may be necessary to reschedule your appointment.

5. For patient owed balances, we will offer credit card, debit cards, and monthly payment plans to assist you in meeting your financial obligations to our office. You must advise us of any payment you receive from insurance or third party for our services and forward this amount to our office immediately.

6. If we are a contracted provider on your insurance plan, we will file a claim with your carrier and you will be billed when they have responded to our claim. Upon receipt of their response, payment or denial, you will receive a statement for the amount your insurance company notifies us is your responsibility.

7. If Child Care Limited is not a contracted provider for your insurance plan, we will file a claim with the information you provide and you will be billed for the entire amount. You will receive monthly statements and we will look to you for payment. You will be responsible for working with your insurance company to insure prompt payment.

8. If you do not have a current insurance card with you, you will be billed for the entire amount and asked for payment at time of service. It is your responsibility to give us your card at each visit (if requested). We will not be able to file your insurance without a copy of your insurance card.

9. It is our policy that the parent that brings the child into the office for services or treatment is responsible for the account; irregardless of divorce decree's or marital status, etc.
