We strive to maintain fees for service at a reasonable level commensurate with the level of care provided and the high level of training by the physicians in this group practice. Please understand, however, that some insurance plans set their reimbursements at arbitrary levels that bear no relationship to the cost of rendering medical care. Our primary concern is your health, and that will be the driving force for treatment recommendations.
There are standardized charges for various procedures, and these fees are listed in the office and are available at all times during normal business hours. Questions regarding fees should be directed to the business manager.
In addition to AOGA’s fee, any patient using the hospital, lab, or other specialties such as anesthesia will receive separate invoices from those providers.
Charges for office visits are expected to be paid at the time of the visit. Payment may be by Cash, Check, Money Order, Visa, MasterCard or Discover. If AOGA participates with your insurance provider, we will collect the co-pay and any deductible at the time of your visit. Prior to any procedures beyond an office visit, we will check to see if and how much will be covered by your policy. Amounts not covered by your policy are due at the time of the procedure. For patients with high deductibles, we do work out payment arrangements. Regardless of your insurance situation, should you find yourself unable to pay at the time of service, please call the business manager to discuss payment arrangements.
