All co-payments are due at the time of service. We accept cash, check or credit cards. We accept the following credit cards – VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Care Credit.
Referrals and Pre-Certifications
Referrals to see i-Health providers are the patient’s responsibility. If a patient does not obtain the appropriate referrals and his/her claims are denied, payment will become the patient’s responsibility. If a prior authorization/precertification is neaded; i-Health will initiate and complete the necessary information to obtain approval for your procedure and/or service. It is your responsibility to ensure the appropraite authorizations are completed prior to the service and/or procedure being rendered.
Good Faith Estimates
i-Health will provide an estimate of cost for future service. Although we will estimate what your insurance company may pay, it is the insurance company that makes the final determination of your eligibility and benefits including co-payments, co-insurance and/or deductible amounts.
Insurance Claims and Benefits
Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. It is your responsibility to understand your benefits including information pertaining to co-payments, co-insurance and deductibles. As a courtesy, i-Health will file claims for benefits with all insurance companies with claims offices within the United States or its territories. In order to properly bill your insurance company, it is important that you provide all insurance information including primary, secondary and tertiary insurance, as well as, notify i-Health of any changes to your insurance information. Failure to provide this information may results in larger or inaccurate amounts of patient responsibility.
If your insurance company is not contacted with i-Health, you are considered out-of-network. If you decide to obtain care with an out-of-network provider, you will be responsible to pay any portion of the charges not covered by your insurance, including those charges above the usual and customary allowance.
If you are uninsured, a down-payment may be required prior to your service. Down-payment amounts will vary based on the service. If you cannot afford the down-payment, i-Health offers a Financial Assistance Program. Any remaining amounts will be balanced billed to the patient. If the patient does not bring in required payment at the time of service, the patient may be rescheduled to another day when payment can be made. A prompt pay discount of 20% will be offered for payment in full.
Financial Hardship Program
i-Health offers a financial hardship program. Please contact the i-Health Customer Service Department (952-512-5625) to review this program.
Finance charges may be imposed on accounts beginning 60 days from the date of the initial billing statement. At present the interest rate is 6% per year.
Any outstanding balances should be paid at the time of service unless prior arrangements have been made. If your insurance does not pay the balance in full, you will receive a statement. Payment is due upon receipt of your statement. Failure to pay your balance may result in your account being transferred to an outside collection agency. If your account is turned over to an outside collection agency, all balances must be paid in full prior to initiating additional treatment for a new problem. If your account is placed with a collection agency, you may be dismissed as a patient from i-Health.
i-Health will refund any amounts owed to patients within 45 fays of discovery, request or notification. All refunds will be processed in the form the payment was made.
