We make every effort to keep down the cost of medical care. When you call to schedule an appointment, we would be happy to discuss the estimated charge of your visit. If, at the time of the visit, any tests or procedures are requested by you or recommended by Dr. Kinney, please feel free to ask about the cost before you proceed.
WE ACCEPT CASH OR CHECK FOR PAYMENT OF SERVICES. WE ARE NOT SET UP FOR DEBIT OR CREDIT CARDS OR ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS.
Please note - Dr. Kinney is not a contracted provider for any insurance plans but we are happy to assist you in filing your claim for paid-in-full services. We will ask you for a copy of your driver’s license and insurance card when you check in for your appointment.
When you come for an appointment, you will be asked to provide insurance information so that we may assist you with scheduling tests (mammograms, sonograms, etc,). Also in the unforeseen event that you would need emergency surgery or hospitalization, we need this information on hand so that we can contact your insurance company, helping prevent unnecessary penalties on any reimbursement due to you.
We try to simplify the preparation of insurance claims, thereby holding down the costs that are unrelated to the delivery of good medical care. The receipt we give you at the end of each visit contains all the information needed from the doctor for your insurance carrier to process your claim. If you prefer, we are happy to submit claims to your insurance company on your behalf, once the balance is paid in full. In this case, we do indicate that you have paid the bill and any explanation of benefits and reimbursement due should be sent directly from the insurance company to you. Of course, we will be happy to assist you in submitting your paid office visit whenever you have a question.
So that she may continue to spend all of her time on direct patient care, Dr. Kinney no longer completes prior authorizations or formulary exemptions for drug coverage.
