Decatur County Primary Care Financial Policy

Payment is due for services at the time of your visit. We accept cash, checks, and credit/debit cards for payment; we do not participate in various insurance plans. Verification of eligibility and benefits for an insurance company DOES NOT guarantee payment. Your insurance carrier determines payment at the time they receive a claim. Verification and filing in most cases is a courtesy we provide for our patients. However, you are the one with the relationship with the insurance company, and ultimately you are responsible to pay the bill.

We are not responsible for the actions of your insurance company. Therefore, you may be billed for any balances or services determined “not covered” by your insurance company. When you purchase a plan or provided coverage by an employer, they will often tell you what is covered and what is not. You may not always remember or be aware of the actual benefits. We will sometimes ask you to sign a “waiver” which explains this and lets you know you may be billed for a particular service that may or may not be covered. This is also the case with Medicare and Medicaid.
