A discount of 25 percent is given on any evaluation and management code or procedures performed in the office if the charges are paid at the time of service or a payment plan is established. Inpatient services will be extended a 25 percent discount if payment is received within 30 days from the date of discharge.
The following services are not affected by the 25 percent discount as they are already provided at a reduced rate or at a flat fee for all payers:
- Blood draws
- Commercial Driver’s License
- Adoption physicals
- Work physicals
Under no circumstances will there be any reduction for co-payments or deductibles.
The fee for completing forms or for the copying of medical records is not to be discounted.
Payment plans can be established for accounts greater than $50. The minimum payment must be greater than $20 per month. Monthly payments must be made to keep accounts in good standing. If a patient fails to make monthly payments, there will be statements followed by a letter requesting payment. If there is no response to the statements the account proceeds to collections.
The adjustment to charges is taken at the time of service or during charge entry when payment is paid in full or partial payment is received.
