What can I expect to pay?

What can I expect to pay?

We ask all patients to make a payment toward care before or at the time you arrive for your test or procedure.
If you have health insurance, you will be responsible for paying the co-payment, deductibles and co-insurance based on your insurance plan. Below are some terms you should know:

  • Co-payments are a required payment based on your insurance policy. The co-pay is paid at the time of your medical visit.
  • Deductible is the amount you pay out-of-pocket before insurance will cover the remaining costs.
  • Co insurance is a shared expense between you and your insurance. You may be required to pay a certain percent of the charges for medical services. For example, insurance pays 80% and you pay 20%. Depending on your insurance plan, you may need to meet your deductible before the co-insurance is applied.
  • Out-of-pocket maximum is the yearly total amount your health insurance company requires you to pay towards the cost of your health care on an annual basis.
