INSURANCE AND BILLING

Insurance

Before arriving to your appointments: Please be informed of the details of your insurance policy. Many health plans require pre-certification and sometimes predetermination of medical necessity prior to care being rendered. This can take up to six weeks. Services that may require pre-certification include hospital stays, outpatient surgeries/procedures, and hi-tech imaging (MRI/CT).

Time of your appointments: Please be prepared to present your health insurance card and form of ID (ex. Driver’s license) upon admission.

Billing

We understand working with insurance companies and understanding your bill can sometimes be confusing. If you have questions about your statement or bill, please call 320-843-4232. Our highly qualified staff is well informed of the rules and regulations governing insurance filing.
