INSURANCE AND BILLING
At Gastroenterology Associates of North Mississippi, we participate in a variety of insurance companies. Your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company and our facility is not a party to your contract. At the time of your visit to our facility, patients need to provide our staff with the most current and correct information, including your insurance card. You, the patient, are financially responsible for all co-pays and deductibles associated at the time services are rendered. Any medical care determined by your insurance company to be a “non-covered benefit” is also your responsibility.
We will be happy to perform courtesy billing for you to your insurance company, provided that we have all pertinent billing information. We will not become involved in disputes between you and your insurance company regarding deductibles, non-covered charges, co-insurance payments, secondary insurance coverage, coordination of benefits or pre-existing conditions other than to provide any necessary factual information.
In the event that unforeseen financial difficulties arise, our facility will make an effort to work with any patient who experiences these struggles. Arrangements may be made after careful consideration of these circumstances on an individual basis. Formal arrangements, with our staff, must be made prior to services rendered, when possible. If a balance is remaining on your account when this financial hardship arises, we will attempt to work with you as best we can. Please keep in mind that charges assessed are based on the nature of your illness and that all steps taken are necessary to complete your evaluation properly.
Our office is pleased to accept the following methods of payment: CASH, CHECK, VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS, DEBIT CARD.
