We comply with the privacy requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). All information in your record is strictly confidential and will not be released to anyone without your prior written approval.
At the time of becoming a new patient with our office, you will sign a Financial Acknowledgement Agreement assigning all insurance benefits to SPP so that we may secure payment of benefits from your insurance carrier, less any copays, coinsurances, or deductible amounts that are patient responsibility. If you are a self-pay account you will sign the form acknowledging that you are financially responsible for all services billed by your provider.
It is the patient and or responsible party's obligation, prior to receiving service, to notify SPP of any secondary or tertiary insurance plans, or if a current plan terminates and you obtain a new one. If the patient/responsible party fails to notify SPP of any insurance policy changes/additions and it is past timely filling with the plan, the balance will be that of the patient/responsible party.
Patient balance statements are sent every 60 days, in which the statement will include all accounts and services that have a remaining patient responsibility. Any account with a patient balance over 120 days will be subject to being transferred to a collection agency unless a prior payment arrangement has been made. Reasonable efforts will be made and documented in the patient's account, to contact the responsible party, including soft collection letters, and phone calls when statements are returned as undeliverable. When it is determined that the patient or responsible party cannot be contacted or located, the balance will be referred to a collection agency.
We understand that you may sometimes face financial hardships that make it difficult for you to cover healthcare costs. Please give us a call at (210) 582-6440 if you are experiencing financial difficulty, and we will discuss options for a payment plan or other arrangements approved by your provider.
