GhentMD will submit claims to insurance carriers with which we participate. We cannot guarantee that all services we recommend or provide are covered by your insurance so we encourage you to contact your insurance carrier to verify coverage if you are uncertain of your benefits. It is the patient’s responsibility to ensure that providers are in-network prior to your visit. Well visits for annual health maintenance checks are preventative by design and typically include physical evaluation and laboratory work. Some insurance plans will not cover additional problem-orientated services on the same day of service as a well visit. If you request the evaluation of a medical problem that requires evaluation and possibly treatment at a well visit, you will be responsible for the cost of the portion of the visit not covered by your insurance as it is up to the patient to know what their plan will allow.
We require proof of current insurance and photo ID at check-in for every visit. Please provide all the necessary information about your insurance.
Below is a list of health insurance carriers we are currently contracted with. The list will be updated from time to time. Please call the office if you have questions regarding insurance coverage.
Insurance, Fees and Payments
Fees & Payments:
Payment is requested for all office services at the time they are rendered except prior arrangements were made. We accept cash, debit and credit cards for your convenience. We do not accept checks. Co-payments, current balances, deductibles and co-insurance are to be collected at the time of visit. Please note that co-payments are non-refundable and we are unable to refund any costs once services are rendered. Our billing department will bill you any additional amount not covered or will credit overpayment to your account after your insurance pays their portion.
Patient Balance – After filing with your insurance company, we will send you a patient balance statement via mail or email. Payment in full is due upon receipt of this statement. If you have any questions or wish to dispute the balance, it is your responsibility to contact our billing office within 30 days of the date of the statement. Please contact our billing office to discuss a payment schedule if you are unable to pay the balance in full. Any late fees already incurred on past due balances will be included.
Insurance does not generally provide coverage for many administrative services offered by medical practices. The services listed below may have an administrative service charge that will be directly billed to you. Payment is your responsibility.
