Decatur County Primary Care
As a service to our patients we “accept assignment” on Medicare, Medicaid, and some private insurances with which we have signed contracts. This means they will tell us what they allow and then remit directly to us that amount. For Medicare, it is 80% of that amount. This means that along with paying your deductible, you are also responsible for 20% of the total allowable amount at the time of your visit. Our co-payments, deductibles, and payment for the “uncovered” services mentioned above are due at the time of service. In some cases this will only by an estimate, and we will try to be as accurate as possible. We do expect your cooperation in the process to collect and give us the best possible since you are the one with the contract. If any private insurance company does not pay within 60 days of billing, any unpaid balances are due and payable in full from you. All Medicaid patients must provide a current identification card prior to being seen each visit.
As a courtesy, we do file any insurance, and also as many secondary insurances as can be programmed, If we are unable to file for you, we will assist you in getting the information together for you to use in filing for yourself.
If you have questions regarding your billing and insurance, our business office can answer them. Office hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please call 812-662-9769 for billing questions only.
