We are Participating Physicians in the Medicare program. We will file with Medicare for services you receive and Medicare will pay our office. Our contractual arrangement with Medicare mandates that we accept their "Approved" amount as our charge for that service. Medicare will then pay 80% of the approved amount to us after you have met your annual deductible. If you provide us with Medicare supplemental insurance cards, we will also file for the Medicare deductible and coinsurance. If there is an amount due after your supplemental insurance has paid, or if your claim is denied, it is your responsibility to clear your account with us. If you do not have other insurance coverage, you are responsible for the deductible and coinsurance amounts. You should not receive a bill until Medicare has paid its share.
