Thank you for choosing Valley Medical Center, PLLC. We are committed to providing you with the very best medical care we have available. Please understand that payment for this medical care is your responsibility.
The following is a statement of our Financial Policy, which prior to the rendering of any treatment, must be read, agreed to and signed. This Financial Policy applies to all service rendered by the providers, lab, x-ray and any other procedure which the provider(s) may consider or advise in treatment of your case (or legal guardian for patient).
New patients with no insurance coverage or without proof of insurance coverage are expected to pay for their services in full on the date of the service. Existing patients with no insurance coverage are expected to pay a minimum of $100.00 deposit toward their services or if surgery the patient would be required to pay 80% of the surgery estimate. Higher deposits may be required depending on the type of service you are receiving. If payment cannot be made, arrangements must be made with one of our patient services counselors. We accept VISA, Discover and Mastercard credit cards.
Credit may be extended after a review by one of our patient services counselors, if you have a good credit rating. All account balance agreements must be paid in full within four months. Routine monthly payments, as per any agreement, are necessary to continue any credit arrangement.
It is the patient's responsibility to verify their benefits for their particular insurance plan and to make sure all the proper authorizations/referrals have been obtained. Some insurance plans will reduce benefits of the insured if treated by a provider outside of the designated network or if the proper authorizations/referrals have not been obtained. It is your responsibility to tell us in advance if your insurance company requires pre-authorization of procedures. Please keep us informed of insurance changes.
We strive to keep our fees as low as possible while still maintaining excellent quality. However, the costs of providing high-quality medical care are constantly rising and increases to our fees are a reflection of a rise in our costs.
