Insurance & Billing

Please let us know if you have any questions related to fees, billing or insurance that are not answered here.

Schedule of Fees

The fee for your initial examination may vary depending on the extent of the visit. We require payment in full at the time of your appointment unless we are contracted with your insurance provider for direct billing or other arrangements have been made in advance with our billing office.

 

Review of Imaging

Dr. Hadcock will be reviewing your previous mammogram and/or breast ultrasounds as a part of her comprehensive assessment of your case. This additional reading and interpretation will be charged to your insurance company and you will see the charge on your EOB (explanation of benefits) from your insurance company.

 

Surgery Billing

We require our patients to provide current insurance billing information prior to surgery. We require that you pay for any elective procedures that are not covered by your policy in full, 14 days prior to your procedure. In some cases, we may require you to pay your portion of insurance-covered expenses (example: deductible plus 20% co-insurance) prior to surgery.

 

FMLA, Disability and Insurance Forms

We can assist you with completion of forms for FMLA, Disability and Insurance as needed. There is a $15 preparation fee per form related to your surgery. Please make sure your and your employer’s portions are completed and signed before submitting it to our office. All disability forms are completed after your surgery has been performed.

 

Billing

To best serve our patients, we use Integrated Medical Solutions for our billing needs. Tracy Beberian and her friendly staff are reachable at 559-253-2800. Please mention that you are a patient of Dr. Margaret Hadcock when calling.

 

We are committed to working with our patients for payment options. Please call us anytime to discuss your account if you receive a statement from our office that you do not understand. We bill primary and secondary insurance only. Balances not paid by your insurance company within 60 days become the responsibility of the patient. Once you have received a statement, it is your responsibility to pay the account in full. If there is no action on the account for more than 90 days, the account will be sent to a collection agency for further resolution of unpaid balances.
