Patient Financial Responsibility
Realizing that financial surprises can be unpleasant, we wish to provide you with the following information concerning your financial responsibility for the services that you receive from Ashton Podiatry Associates.
If your insurance policy requires a referral from your Primary Care Physician (PCP), it is your responsibility to obtain that referral. Failure to obtain a required referral may result in denial of payment by your insurance company, in which case you would be responsible for payment of those charges. We are happy to assist you in obtaining referrals; however, the responsibility is ultimately yours.
Payment is requested at the time of service for any amounts which will be applied to co pay, deductible or coinsurance. In addition, some services or supplies may not be covered by your insurance. Payment for these items will be requested at the time of service.
We will do our best to obtain accurate benefit information from your insurance carrier. However, we are sometimes given incorrect information by insurance companies, especially regarding such services as custom-casted foot orthotics, routine foot care and durable medical equipment. Any services denied by your insurance carrier will be your responsibility. You may also want to call your insurance company to understand your benefits.
Please inform us of any insurance changes. Failure to provide current insurance information may result in a denial of claims which could then become your responsibility. Please keep in mind that many insurance carriers have a claim filing deadline, sometimes as short as 60 days.
We want to do everything we can to make your experience with us a pleasant one, so if you have questions please give us a call.
