There are basic fees for each visit and for additional treatment procedures. You will be financially responsible for the medical care received. Charges for services will be submitted to your insurance company; we will file your insurance for you. A billing statement will be mailed to you monthly showing your balance due. If you are insured by one of the PPOs to which we belong, you will be asked to pay any applicable copay at the time of your visit.
We accept Medicare, Medicaid (Mississippi), Blue Cross of Mississippi, Mississippi Physician Care Network, Mississippi Health Partners, and United Healthcare. You must bring your insurance card with you in order for us to file your claim. Your insurance contract is between you and the insurance company or government agency. You should be aware of any policy restrictions with your insurance company. You are responsible for any amount not covered by your plan. If you change insurance companies, please let us know. Telephone inquiries regarding your financial account should be directed to the Billing Department at (601) 982-7850.
For your convenience, we have established VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover systems for the payment of services. We also honor bank debit cards. If you need to make payment arrangements, you may discuss this with a representative in our office.
Should you have financial problems that result in a payment delay, please contact us. We won’t know you are having problems unless you tell us. We will make every effort to work out an acceptable payment plan to enable you to take care of your obligation. If all efforts fail, referral of your account to a collection agency may be necessary.
Please note that you may receive a separate bill from the various providers who render services to you, including the physician, the hospital, and/or the radiologist.
