Appointments

We request a 24 hours’ notice if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment.

Effective 09/01/2017, Optimal Health is requiring a $50 missed appointment fee if more than 2 cancellations (same day) or No Show appointments occur within 3 months.

New patients are asked to pay a $50 deposit towards their third appointment if they cancel late or No Show more than 2 times.

Insurance
Always refer to your insurance company for a list of preferred providers. Please pay your portion of your bill (co-pay/deductible) at the time of your visit. We are required by your insurance company to collect this payment. If you do not have your insurance card and your co-pay, you will be rescheduled or responsible for all charges. We will submit your claims to your insurance plan and bill you for any balance that may be remaining.

Please obtain a referral, if needed, to prevent the rescheduling of your appointment.

Optimal Health Associates staff will often attempt to pre-certify certain radiologic testing. We cannot pre-certify all necessary radiologic tests. We do not pre-certify laboratory tests deemed necessary and appropriate by providers. Once you are seen, we proceed with evaluations irrespective of insurance/non-insurance status and/or coverage issues. You are responsible for knowing your insurance benefits for lab, radiology and other testing – each insurance carrier is different and changes can occur monthly.

We provide medical service for self-pay patients. Please contact our office to discuss fees.

We accept cash, checks and credit cards.

Contact our billing office at 419-8444 with your questions.

Understanding Protected Health Information & HIPAA

It is our desire to safeguard your protected health Information (PHI). PHI is any health information including a patient’s past, present or future healthcare-related services. This includes demographics, documentation of symptoms, examinations, test results, diagnoses and treatments.

The Health Information Portability and Accountability Act of 1966 (HIPAA) Privacy Rule permits providers to use and disclose PHI without a patient’s written authorization for purposes of treatment, payment and healthcare operations. This allows us to send a patient’s PHI to continuing care providers, facilities and insurance companies to better assist in your health care. Your written authorization to share PHI with anyone other than your spouse is needed in your patient file.
