FAQ

What is the waiting time to see the provider?

We do our absolute best to make sure you get to see your provider at the time of your scheduled appointment. There are times in an absolute emergency where we run behind schedule, but we do try our best to see you as soon as possible.

Do I need to schedule an appointment to be seen at your practice?

No, we are also a walk-in clinic, but please note as a walk-in patient you will have to wait while we take our scheduled appointments in first.

Can a prescription be called in without an appointment?

Yes, depending on the nature of the medication and subject to agreement with the provider.

What is a P.A?

P.A stands for Physician’s Assistant. P.A’s have several years of medical school training after college and practice medicine under a licensed Physician. They are able to perform routine exams, diagnose and treat illness, order and interpret tests, and prescribe most medications.

What is an N.P?

N.P stands for Nurse Practitioner. An N.P is a nurse that has expert knowledge in specialties. NP’s must also train and qualify to work under a physician’s practice.

What is a deductible?

A health insurance deductible is the amount of covered expense you must incur and pay each calendar year before any benefits from health insurance. Expenses that are not covered by your health insurance policy will not be applied to your deductible.

When does my calendar year deductible start from?

The calendar year begins January 1st and ends December 31st each year.

What is coinsurance?

Coinsurance (rate of payment) is the percentage of covered expense you are responsible for after you have met your deductible. For example, if your coinsurance is 20% up to $500, your insurance will pay benefits at 80% of covered expenses up to $500. Then your insurance will pay 100% of your covered charges, up to the policy maximum. You are responsible for the 20% amount that -your insurance does not pay.

What is a copayment?

A copayment is the amount you pay for each prescription drug or physician’s office visit you have. Copayments are due at time of service at each office encounter you have with a physician/medical provider.

What is individual out-of-pocket expense?

Individual out-of-pocket expense is your deductible and coinsurance added together. In other words, it is the maximum you will have to pay – per person, per calendar year – in deductibles and coinsurance.

What is family out-of-pocket?

Family out-of-pocket expense is your deductible and coinsurance added together- for your whole family. In other words, it is the maximum you would have to pay per person, per calendar year, no matter how many members of your family need health insurance benefits.

Am I responsible for all financial charges incurred during the visit to your practice if the insurance does not cover the service?

Yes, all non-covered services will be the patient’s responsibility.
