Billing and Insurance
We work with most insurance carriers who do business in southern New Jersey. In most cases, we will bill your insurance carrier after services are rendered. Your insurance company requires that we collect all co-payments at the time of service. Once your claim is processed, you may be responsible for a deductible or co-insurance depending upon the plan you have chosen.
Some plans require a referral from your primary care doctor. This referral may be a paper form, which you should pick up at your primary care physician’s office and bring with you to your appointment.
If your referral process is electronic, your primary care physician will enter the referral online and our office will retrieve it.
With a proper referral, we can expedite your care and schedule any necessary tests or surgical procedures without delay.
If your insurance requires a co-payment, we will collect this at the time of service, or when your insurance instructs, you may be billed at a later date.
