Cardiology Associates is a provider for most insurance companies. Your insurance claim will be filed for you by our billing department. You are responsible, however, for payment of copays, deductibles, co-insurance, and any services not covered by your insurance. All copays will be collected at the time of check-in. We also request that you follow-up with your insurance company on any unpaid services.
To ensure proper billing, it is important that your patient registration form is current. If you experience any changes in your insurance, primary care physician, home address, or other relevant information, please notify the main office. Our staff will routinely make copies of your insurance cards as part of the check-in process to help us keep registration forms updated and to eliminate incorrect billing.
Please bring your insurance cards to every appointment. Destroy all old insurance cards.
If you are eligible to receive Medicare medical benefits, our office does accept assignment which means we accept the Medicare approved amount. Either you or your supplemental insurance will be responsible for the Medicare deductible and 20% of the approved amount.
Please note that if you are participating in a Medicare replacement plan, your regular Medicare becomes inactive.
If you are eligible to receive Medicaid medical benefits, you are responsible for payment on non-covered services. Please bring your Medicaid card with you to every visit.
