If you have both commercial insurance and no-fault insurance, you are responsible for providing the correct insurance at your visit. If your plan requires referrals, pre-certifications, or other required documentation prior to your appointments, you are responsible for ensuring they are obtained before receiving services. If your plan requires authorization, and you do not provide such referral, authorization, or certification, you will be responsible for all charges that are not paid by your insurance carrier due to lack of authorization.

If you have an insurance plan that we do not participate with, but through which you have out-of-network benefits, we may agree to file claims for services rendered, and wait for insurance Cartier adjudication before billing you for the balance of the charges. Patients utilizing out-of-network benefits are responsible for paying an amount at check-in equivalent to their copayment amount (or $25 if there is no copay amount printed on the card) as patient payment toward their financial responsibility. If your plan advises us that you do not have coverage for the services rendered out-of-network, you will be billed for the entire balance. If your plan issues payment for services rendered out-of-network, you may be responsible for some or all of the remaining balance, which we will invoice you for Balance bills are due immediately upon receipt, by endorsing the check over to Essential Rehab, along with a complete copy of the Explanation of benefits.

Platelet Balances and Payment:
It is our right and responsibility to bill you for any portion of your treatment that your health insurance carrier assigns to your responsibility, including deductible and coinsurance. It is your responsibility, detailed by the terms of your health insurance coverage, to pay any such portion.

Health Insurance non-payment:
