At North Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic, we have one standard of care for all – the best.
The professional fees in our office are carefully examined and are customary for orthopaedic surgeons in our area. We make every attempt to keep your overall medical expenses to a minimum. The cost of operating a large orthopaedic practice is significant, and this is reflected as part of our fee. Billing costs are a portion of this overhead, and in an effort to keep this cost to a minimum, it is expected that fees for office visits and X-rays will be paid at the time your service is rendered. This gives you a clear understanding of your bill and an opportunity to discuss any problems.
We do not want any patient to suffer undue financial hardship because of their misfortune.
If you are having difficulty with your account, please do not hesitate to request a meeting with our accounting department where a confidential discussion may help resolve your problem. For your convenience, payments for your office visits may be made by cash, check, or credit card.
For North Louisiana Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Clinic office visits, payment is expected on the day of your office visit.
For surgical procedures and other services performed outside of our office, we will file with your insurance company for payment to be made directly to us. You will be expected to pay a deposit based on your insurance benefits, deductible, and/or out of pocket. We will do whatever we can to assist you with your insurance claim.
In instances where there is an accident-related injury that may require legal action, we hold the person who has received our services responsible for the bill payment, regardless of any pending legal action. Please note, deductibles and co-payments are due at the time of your appointment.
For work-related injuries, we will need written authorization from your insurance carrier.
