Billing Policy & Financial Arrangements

To allow our patients to obtain medical care when it is most needed, the Baton Rouge Clinic's policy is to extend credit to established patients with insurance accounts in good standing. New clinic patients are requested to pay for their first visit at the time of service, unless they have a contracted insurance with a co-payment.

Insurance Companies contracted with the Baton Rouge Clinic can be found here.

The following financial categories are supported here:

I. Medicare and HMO's - If your primary carrier is Medicare or an HMO, we file the charges to your carrier. After the insurance company responds and if there is a balance due from the patient, you will receive a statement showing the charges, any payments, and the balance due. The balance is considered the patient's responsibility. Please make payment to the Clinic upon receipt of your statement.

II. PPO's - If the Clinic is a participating provider with your PPO insurance plan, we file charges to your insurance carrier. After the insurance company responds and if there is a balance due from the patient, you will receive a statement showing the charges, any payments, and the balance due. The balance is considered the patient's responsibility. Please make payment to the Clinic upon receipt of your statement.

III. Other Insurance Plans & Private Pay - If the Clinic is not directly contracted with your insurance we will file your claims as a courtesy. We will allow 45 days for insurance reimbursement. If insurance does not reimburse within that time period, you are responsible for the balance in full. If you do not have insurance, payment is due at the time of service.

We invite you to discuss any financial questions or special concerns with our business office located on the first floor at The Baton Rouge Clinic, or call our business office at (225) 246-9304.
