Insurance and Account Payment Information

The physicians of Allergy & Asthma Specialists participate in most insurance healthcare plans offered in this area. As a service to our patients, we will submit your insurance claim to these healthcare plans. 

Patient Responsibility and Account Balances

Please remember that insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not a substitute for payment.  All insurance co-payments are due at visit check-in, prior to seeing the physician. Payment of a balance due on any visit or service including deductibles, coinsurances, and non-covered services are due before additional services will be rendered. It is very important to keep your account balance current. It is also important for you to bring your current insurance card to each visit and to inform us if there has been any change in your coverage or in your address and contact information. As changes may occur in the plans that we accept, please verify our acceptance at the time you make an appointment.
