BILLING, INSURANCE, & PAYMENT

We participate in most of the major health insurance plans and Tenncare plans. The contracts with the insurances are reviewed periodically and we may elect to add other plans. These plans will be billed directly for all services, but you will be required to pay the co-payment or deductible at the time of your visit.

If you are unsure of your coverage or the amount you will be expected to pay, we suggest you contact your insurance carrier before the office visit. Also, please bring your insurance card with you to your appointment for us to make photocopy. Newborn care and hospital charges will be filed with your insurance carrier. If your bill presents an excessive financial hardship, please contact our office manager so that we can make arrangements for a fair payment schedule.
