Billing & Insurance
Women First participates with many medical insurance plans, and we encourage all patients to read their insurance policy handbook to become familiar with their coverage and pre-certification requirements. If we are a participating provider on your plan, we will process your insurance for the services we provide you. Your co-payment will be required at the time of service. Any deductible applied to our fee or non-covered charges will be your direct responsibility. If you do not have medical health insurance or are receiving medical care that is not covered under your benefits plan you will be expected to pay for your services the same day as your visit.
If your insurance requires pre-authorization for procedures we perform within our office, please inform our billing staff so that we can obtain the appropriate pre-approvals prior to your appointment.
Our billing staff will assist obstetrical patients with estimating their insurance benefits. Any amounts not covered by insurance become the responsibility of the patient and therefore are expected to be paid in full by the 28th week of pregnancy; this same policy applies to those patients who have no obstetrical benefits coverage. An OB budget plan will be reviewed with the patient once their benefits have been verified.
Patients who are scheduled for surgical procedures will be expected to pay the deductible and co-insurance as determined by their insurance prior to the date of surgery.
We require a current copy of your insurance card with each visit. If you do not have your card with you, we will ask that you pay for your visit at the time of service.
