Billing and Insurance

 

Thank you for choosing Oberlander and Associates  Internal  Medicine Inc. for your healthcare needs. Please understand that management of your billing is important in ensuring that we can continue to take care of your health care needs.

 

Billing and insurance questions should be directed to (614) 522-8087.

 

Please bring your current insurance card with you to every visit. Our office will file your insurance claim if we are approved providers of your insurance plan. If you have more than one insurance policy it is your responsibility to inform the staff of the order in which to bill your multiple policies.  In the absence of a current insurance card, you will be asked to pay in full at the office and file with your insurance company yourself.  You are responsible for any amounts not covered by your plan including co-payments, deductibles, coinsurance and non-covered services. Copays and past due balances are due and payable at the time of your appointment.

 

Please be aware that some services provided may be non-covered services under your insurance policy. It is your responsibility to be aware of the policy restrictions and guidelines. We will do our best to assist you in identifying all appropriate information. Our fees are standardized and are based upon time spent and severity and complexity of the visit. Full payment is due when services are rendered for self-pay patients or patients who have no insurance unless other arrangements have been made in advance. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover.

 

If a check is returned to the office due to insufficient funds, the original check amount plus a $30.00 returned check fee must be received within 30 days of the date that the check was originally returned to avoid further late fees or collection action.

 

Please help us better serve you and our other patients by keeping all scheduled appointments. If you must change an appointment, please do so within 24 hours of the appointment time.
