How much will my treatment cost?
Your cost for radiation therapy will vary based on your treatment plan. We will contact your insurance(s) to ask if you will have copays, deductibles and/or coinsurance and provide you with an estimate prior to the start of your treatment.
When will I be billed for my treatment?
- Copays must be paid at the time of services.
- If you are responsible for Deductibles and/or Coinsurance, a payment arrangement for your estimated costs must be established prior to starting treatment.
- If you owe coinsurance or other amounts, a patient billing statement will be mailed monthly.
- If you are unable to pay the amount due within 30 days, please contact the Billing Office to arrange a payment plan.
May I pay with a credit card?
Yes. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and DiscoverCard credit cards. You may complete the credit card information form on your statement and mail it to our group, pay using your credit card at any of our office locations, provide your credit card information to a billing representative by phone.
How often do you bill me?
New charges are added daily to your account. We will submit these charges with your insurance company on a weekly basis. Once a month, you will receive a statement for any balance that you are responsible for.
Who will submit claims to my supplemental insurance carrier?
After your primary insurance carrier has remitted payment to our office, as a courtesy to our patients, we will file a claim to your supplemental or secondary insurance carrier. Very often, the supplemental plan will pay the patient directly. If no payment is received after sixty (60) days from the date of filing, we will transfer the balance to the patient.
