We are pleased to welcome you to our office. New Patients are always appreciated. Our practice has grown as a result of its excellent relationship with our referring doctors and patients. As our patient, please feel free, at any time, to express any concerns or to ask any questions that you may have for the doctor or our staff. In order to assist you in making payment(s) for your podiatric treatment, the following options are listed. Please read them carefully and feel free to discuss them with us.
If you DO NOT have insurance: Payment is due, in full, at the time treatment is provided.
*For your convenience, we accept all major credit/debit cards and cash. We accept personal checks for payments under $50.00.
If you have Insurance: The percentage of coverage by your insurance company may be based on your insurance company’s own reduced fee schedule for medical services and may be less than actual charges resulting in lower coverage for you. InStride Family Foot Care has no control over this situation. Lower payment is a direct result of the plan selected by you or your employer. Please be advised that we cannot waive co-payment. We are required by law to collect co-payment.
Commercial Insurance: We will submit your claim to your insurance carrier for you. You are responsible for any deductible or co-payment not covered by your insurance. Once our office has received payment from the insurance company, you will be billed, with 30 day terms, for any amount still owed. You may choose to keep a credit card on file for those balances left to you by your insurance company.
Medicare: This office accepts Medicare assignment. Medicare patients are fully responsible, however, for the initial yearly deductible and the 20% co-insurance. Federal law requires that physicians collect this amount. If you have a secondary insurance to cover the 20%, we will submit the balance to that insurance for payment and you will only be responsible for the yearly deductible.
