***Remember, some insurance plans require that you name a PCP. Please name either Dr.Woletsky or Dr. Zanolin. We try to keep wait times to a minimum by verifying insurance prior to every visit. We will attempt to contact you should a problem arise. The copay and any previous balances are taken at the time of Check-in. If you have any questions regarding insurance or balances don’t hesitate to contact the Billing department.
We do our very best to let you know if something will not be covered by your insurance. It is also your responsibility to know if you have a deductible, how much it is and if it’s been met. We will bill you for any procedure that your insurance company puts toward a deductible after we receive an explanation of benefits from them. It is the insurance company that determines what is put toward a deductible as well as the amount we are allowed to bill you. If you need a copy of the EOB, contact Billing at ext. 22.
All co-payments are due at the time of the visit. For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, credit cards (Master card and Visa Only). It is important that you know what insurance you have when you make your appointment. All non-covered services are your financial responsibility. If your insurance carrier requests a Primary Care Doctor- we must be named. It is office policy that all insurances are verified prior to your visit, therefore if we are not listed as the PCP your visit may be delayed.
Please be aware that the parent bringing a child to the office will be financially responsible at the time services are provided. For your convenience, your bill may be paid in cash, check or credit card. In the event that someone other than the parent brings the child to the office, we ask that you please make arrangements for the bill to be paid at the time of the visit.
We ask that all prescriptions and authorizations for renewals be requested during normal office hours. Please have the following information available: the child’s approximate weight, allergies to medications, any medications the child is currently taking, and the pharmacy phone number. If this call is a renewal, please have the name, strength, and directions for the medication of if possible the Rx number located on the label.
We appreciate your cooperation in advance.
