Financial Policy
PLEASE READ BEFORE SIGNING
Effective 1/1/2014

The patient/guarantor is responsible for providing The Therapy Center with current, active insurance information. A copy of the insurance card will be scanned into your chart. If your insurance changes, please notify our office immediately.

Your insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance carrier. You remain responsible for any portion of your bill that is not paid by your insurance carrier regardless of the reason for the carrier’s non-payment. If you do not have a secondary insurance carrier to cover any co-payments or deductibles, you are responsible for payment of such amounts. All insurance companies require co-payments be made at the time of service.

Insurance co-payments are due at time of service, prior to seeing the provider. The Therapy Center will submit claims to your primary and secondary insurance as indicated. Once the insurance has processed, an account statement will be mailed to the guarantor of the account for any non-covered services, deductibles, or co-insurance. The responsible party, named below and/or the patient agrees to pay our costs for collection amount owing, including court cost, attorneys’ fees, and collection cost. The cost of collection will not include costs that were incurred by a salaried employee of ours, will not include recovery of both attorneys’ fee and collection agency fees, and will not be in excess of fifteen percent (15%) of the unpaid debt after default.

In certain circumstances, The Therapy Center may contact your insurance in advance to inquire about coverage for special procedures or tests. If it is determined that the service is not covered or will be applied to your deductible, we may require payment in advance. The Therapy Center accepts personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards.

Please make personal checks out to your individual provider, not to The Therapy Center.


Patient Missed Appointment Policy

Staff and clinicians work hard to provide you, our patients, with excellence of service with the utmost professionalism. Our commitment to your well-being is taken seriously by everyone here at The Therapy Center. Our time is as important to us as your time is to you. Missed appointments are missed opportunities for both the patient and the therapist.

With the exception of a serious emergency, it is expected that you keep all of your appointments. If you need to re-schedule an appointment, we require a 24-hour notice. In such a case, please call our office and arrange to reschedule that appointment with our Front Desk Receptionist.

In an instance of a cancellation without a 24-hour notice or no-show to a scheduled appointment, we reserve the right to charge you a cancellation fee. If you are consistently missing your scheduled visits, we also reserve the right to discontinue care.

We appreciate you greatly as our patient and strive to accomplish positive results and success for you.
