To our patients:

Thank you very much for allowing us to participate in your care. We would like to take this opportunity to pass along some important information. Please review this information carefully. Please arrive at your scheduled time and note that a $15.00 per 15 minute appointment fee will be charged for broken appointments unless a 24 hour notification has been given. Payment is expected at the time of treatment and may be made by cash, check or credit card. Any insurance deductible plus your co-payment is due at the time of service. Please be aware that your anticipated insurance benefits are the best estimate the doctor’s office can make.  Any difference between the insurance payment and the estimate is your responsibility. All accounts are due in full 30 days after your insurance company has paid. A 1.5% interest charge will be added monthly until the balance is cleared. Our minimum finance charge is $5.00. Some insurance companies require a referral and/or other administrative paperwork before they will pay for services. You are responsible for obtaining this information and bringing it with you to your appointment. If a referral was required and not acquired, you will be responsible for all charges incurred. If in the event this account is turned over to the collection attorney to retrieve payment, you understand and agree that you are responsible for all collection fees, court costs, legal fees and any consequential expenses related to the report of the account to the credit bureau.

There is a $37.00 fee for returned checks or stop payment of checks.

I hereby authorize the Center for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (COMS),  to disclose to my insurance companies information contained in my health care records for the purpose of securing payment of any benefits for services provided by COMS. My medical information will not be disclosed to any person or organization without my consent. The disclosure of my health care records given to COMS shall remain in effect until such time as I deliver a written notice to COMS stating that I have revoked my consent to the disclosure of my records to the insurance companies. COMS will assist you in getting reimbursement from your insurance companies according to our contract with your carrier, but note that you are ultimately responsible for the Doctor’s fee.
