Insurance and Billing

As a new patient you will be asked to complete a patient information form and verify your insurance information. Please bring your insurance identification card(s) with you. A photocopy will be placed in your billing file. If you are covered by more than one insurance company, please let us know which company is the primary carrier. This will help to avoid any delays in receiving benefits. If there is any change in your health coverage, please contact the office to update your records.

We have set our fees with the goal of being reasonable and fair, and have aligned them with the relative value scale used by Medicare. In all cases, if you have provided us with your insurance information, we will bill your insurance company prior to sending you a statement.

We accept cash, checks, VISA and MasterCard. If you do not have insurance, we will offer a discount for office services if paid on the date of service. For those of you with insurance, in most cases we have already contracted with your insurance carrier for a discount on our fees.

As healthcare providers, we participate with most insurance carriers. If we have a provider agreement with your insurance company, this entitles you to a preferred provider discount. We are contracted with the insurance companies listed below. If you do not see your insurance company listed, please contact us.

Our office will file your medical claims. If you have a cancer policy, you will be required to submit those claims; however, we will provide you with a copy of your bill. If your insurance is an HMO or Managed Care Organization, you are required to obtain a pre-authorization from your Primary Care Physician prior to receiving services from Oncology Associates. Without pre-authorization, your insurance company may impose a penalty in a reduction of benefits or denial of benefits. You are responsible for obtaining pre-authorization forms. If your plan has a co-pay requirement, we would appreciate payment at the time of services.

If other physicians outside of Oncology Associates provide services to you (e.g. radiologists or pathologists), or if you receive services at another institution (e.g. the hospital laboratory), you will be billed by those providers. Questions related to those bills should be directed to those physicians or institutions.

Bill inquiries can be made Monday through Friday 8 a.m. –  5 p.m. at (402) 354 – 5860.
