Insurance and Payment Information
We work closely with the listed insurance carriers, so we can bill
these carriers for you. However, you are responsible for any co-pays or deductibles on
the day of service. Also, we do not participate with other commercial insurance
companies or HMO's. If you have one of these insurance plans, we ask that you pay for
services when care is rendered. We will provide you with an itemized receipt to submit
to your insurance company for reimbursement. If you have questions about our fees, we
will be happy to discuss this with you. Credit and debit cards are also accepted.
We understand that your schedule may change and you may
need to cancel an appointment. Please call our office 24 hours in advance to cancel an
appointment at (231) 935-0440.
Please call our office with the prescription that you
need refilled. Prescriptions will be called in within 24 hours if possible.
Our office staff does not provide information to patients
regarding the results of diagnostic studies or laboratory tests. If you wish to talk
to the physician about test results, please leave a message and one of our
physicians or nurses will call you. Some test results are available the day after
your study or blood work is taken; others may require a week or more to complete and
communicate. The nursing staff at Pulmonary &
Critical Care is the initial phone contact for patient questions.
