CO-PAYS AND DEDUCTIBLES

Per our contractual agreement with your insurance carrier, we are obligated to collect Co-pays and deductibles at the time of service.  Some co-pays will differ according to the nature of the visit.  If you have an annual deductible associated with your plan you will be asked to make payment toward the amount that you are responsible for with your plan.

INSURANCE VERIFICATION

Medical Neurology will verify your insurance prior to and during your appointment with our office. Many plans are known to make changes in their coverage and benefits, and this is why we obtain your insurance card and identification during each visit. This process insures us to be able to bill your insurance correctly and inform you of any changes you may be unaware of.

BILLING

Our billing department will make at least 2 attempts to obtain payment from your insurance carrier.  If we are unable to obtain payment from your insurance, we will then bill you and ask that you assist us in following up with your insurance plan. 

Our office sends out patient statements twice a month on any balance that is due from you after your insurance has settled the claim for the services.  Our Billed Charges are based on the nation’s average charge for Neurology, which is considered a specialty.  Our Billed Charges are generally reduced to the Insurance Contract Allowable Rate, which will vary per insurance.  Therefore, your pricing is based off the Insurance Contracted Provider Discount Rate, and not the Billed Charges.  After we have taken the contracted provider discount rate, you are billed for any deductibles, coinsurance and any amount that is not payable by your insurance, as determined by your insurance carrier.  We accept Cash, Check, Visa and Master Cards, and our billing department can arrange payments on the remaining balance.  To contact our billing department, please dial (702) 930-6398.

REFERRALS

We generally require a referral to help us obtain payment from your insurance carrier, whether or not your insurance requires one.  To help serve you better, we ask for copies of medical records pertaining to why you are being seen by us.  We require a copy of your insurance card and Photo ID card. 

TRANSFER OF CARE

If you have recently seen a previous neurologist and would like a transfer of care, we require previous neurology records and a referral, before determining the acceptance of your case.

SCHEDULING

If we receive a referral from your physician, we make 3 attempts to contact you.  If possible, we will leave you a message.
If you are calling to schedule an appointment, please be prepared to give us your insurance information and your insurance ID number.
If we are not available to answer your call, please leave a message on our voice mail answering service.  Please leave your full name, phone number and a brief message, and we will return your call as soon as possible.

TEST RESULTS

Please be aware that you are responsible for your test results.  Hence, we always encourage you to make a follow up appointment to discuss in detail these test results.  If you are calling for your test result, a staff member will return your call within 48 hours.  If you still have any more questions please ask our staff for a follow-up appointment if one hasn’t already been scheduled.

PRESCRIPTIONS

Prescription refills will only be made during business hours and can take up to 48 hours.  Please be aware that some controlled scheduled prescriptions are not able to be called into your pharmacy and require you to stop by the office to pick up the prescription.  We also now participate in E-Prescription, which gives us the availability of electronically submitting prescriptions to your local pharmacy or to your mail order pharmacy.  We ask you to please bring in your pharmacy address, phone and fax number, so that we may be able to electronically send your prescriptions.
