All Billing Services for The Colon & Digestive Disease Center are provided by S.B. Medical, Inc.:
For all billing inquiries, to make a payment or make payment arrangements please contact the Billing service directly.
Our Practice accepts most major insurances. It is the responsibility of the patient to properly supply us with their most current insurance information and verify their insurance policy coverage for any scheduled procedure/office appointment. If you are not sure of your coverage please contact your insurance carrier.
All payments, including co-payments, are due at the time of your office visit/consultation. We will ask you to verify your current address and insurance information at the time of each visit.
If your insurance plan requires a referral from your primary care physician, please ensure it is in place prior to your appointment. Otherwise, you must assume responsibility for the full charges incurred at your visit. If you are insured by Medicare then you are required to pay the annual deductible and/or the 20% balance of Medicare’s allowed charges, either personally or by a secondary insurance.
Please be aware that during the course of your care we may send blood tests and biopsy specimens to outside laboratories, utilize facilities (hospitals, surgery centers) and anesthesia, which will then bill you for their service separately. Please direct questions regarding those charges directly to the individual laboratory/facility.
Insurance coverage for each service varies. Patients are responsible for any out-of-pocket expense as a result of co-pays, deductibles, co-insurance, etc.
