Financial Policy

This is the financial policy of Associates in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, P .C. (APM&R). If you have questions about this policy, please speak with any of our staff members. We are dedicated to providing the best possible care and services to you.

  1. Payment for all services provided by our practice is due at the time services are rendered. Exclusions to this policy are those patients who are a member of a health care organization that we have a participating agreement with, such as Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Priority Health and others. Please ask our office staff if you are unsure if we participate with your health plan. We will bill your primary insurance plan for which we have an agreement, and will only require you to pay the authorized co-payment, deductible or non-covered services at the time of service. If APM&R does not participate with your health plan, payment in full will be due at the time service is rendered. We will provide you with a receipt that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. We will also submit the claim form for you as a courtesy.
  2. Medicare patients are responsible for their co-payments and deductibles as well as any services deemed medically unnecessary by Medicare. In the event your health plan determines services are not covered; you will be responsible for the complete charge.
  3. If you are unable to pay for the visit at the time of the service, please call our office prior to the appointment to arrange a payment plan.
  4. Patients will receive one statement itemizing the services rendered and any unpaid patient balances. Balances are due upon receipt.
  5. For services rendered to minors, we will look to the adult accompanying the patient for payment.
  6. APM&R accepts cash, personal checks, money orders, Traveler’s Checks, MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
  7. A $30.00 fee will be assessed to the account for every check returned to APM&R for insufficient funds.
  8. APM&R reserves the right to turn any patient over to collections if it is deemed that the account has been in default of the payment obligations or compliance of this policy. It is understood and agreed that APM&R shall recover all costs and expenses incurred in the collection of any such delinquent amounts.
  9. There will be a $10.00 charge for the completion of every form we are asked to complete by the patient, insurance companies, etc. Forms 2 pages or greater are subject to additional fees ranging from $25 to $50 based upon the combination of time, complexity, and professional opinion, diagnosis, and/or treatment.
  10. Due to the increased demands for provider time, APM&R may find it necessary to institute charges for patients who do not cancel their prescheduled appointment at least 24 hours in advance. You may be charged $45 if you are a new patient and $25 if you are an established patient and fail to cancel 24 hours in advance.
