Dr Verna will provide a bill after each visit. Payment in full is due upon receipt of your bill – electronic (ACH) payments, checks, cash or credit cards (American Express, Master Card, Visa, and Discover) are accepted. Please make checks payable to Matias Verna, M.D.
Any payment arrangements through a third party (with the exceptions of spousal payments and of parent/guardian-minor payments) require a signed, written agreement and a pre-authorized credit card on file. For example, an adult whose parent has agreed to pay will require a written agreement by the parent and a pre-authorized credit card on file.Delinquent accounts may be assigned to an outside agency for collection. Please talk with Dr. Verna directly if you are having financial hardship so that he can work out a payment plan with you without disrupting your treatment.
Other Insurances (out-of-network)Your insurance company may require pre-certification for medical services provided by non-participating providers. It is your obligation to obtain and renew the authorization of services. Pre-certification means that you must notify in advance your insurance company of medical services provided by non-participating providers. This is generally required by most policies. Your insurance card may indicate the pre-certification telephone number; otherwise you should call the toll-free number for Customer Service. Please refer to your plan documents for your pre-certification requirements. Please follow the pre-certification procedure in order to maximize your benefits. Failure to do so may result in denial of benefits.Coverage determinations and payments of claims are subject to all the eligibility, coverage, exclusions, and limitations listed in your insurance contract. We strongly encourage to verify your out-of-network benefits prior to your initial consultation.
