Our Clinic desires to keep the cost of your medical care as low as possible. To do this, you must assume responsibility for payment of services rendered. Our office is contracted with many different insurance plans, PPO's, and managed care providers as a convenience to patients within our community. It is in your best interest to understand your insurance policy and how it works. Most insurance companies require paitents to pay a portion of their doctor's visit costs. The patient's responsibility is often described as a co-pay, co-insurance or deductible. You will be asked to pay your co-pay prior to your appointment. If you do not, we may have to reschedule your appointment.
Co-payments are expected to be paid when you check in with our front desk on the day of your appointment. You are also required to present your current insurance card at each and every visit.
Once we receive payment from your insurance company, a statement will be sent to you for any remaining balance. Payment must be made within 30 days or arrangements can be made with the billing department.
For your convenience, you may make payment to the Butler County Clinic, P.C. in a variety of ways:
