It is the policy of SMCS to submit claims to third-party payers in a timely manner as a courtesy to patients and in an effort to receive prompt payment for services rendered. We will bill your insurance company, however, you are responsible for any outstanding balances not covered by your plan. If we do not receive payment within 45 days, the full balance will become your responsibility.
Co-payments are your responsibility as a patient and payment is due at the time of service. If a co-payment is not made at the time of service, an additional $10 fee will be charged which is your responsibility and is not covered by insurance.
There is a $50 charge for missed appointments. These are your responsibility as a patient and are not covered by insurance.
If checks are returned for non-payment, you will be charged a $30 fee for related expenses.
If it becomes necessary to transfer unpaid balances to a collection agency, any legal fees associated with those collections will be your full responsibility.
