PHONE CALLS/AFTER HOURS CALLS/TELEPHONE CONSULTATIONS:
We typically return
routine/non-urgent phone calls within the same business day if the message is left within normal business hours.
Our policy is to provide quality patient care through scheduled office visits, not unscheduled phone calls, and we
may direct you to make an appointment. If it is an urgent matter, you may dial our after hours number
(866.256.4501; also found on website & main office voice mail) to contact a provider. After hours phone calls in
excess of five minutes will be charged a rate consistent with office time, and are usually not covered by insurance.
In the event of any emergency, please go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 immediately. You may also
contact your provider through the after hours line, after taking the step above.
Please recognize when you are short on medication and call your pharmacy. Often patients have refills on file. If
not, ask the pharmacy to fax the office a medication refill request for your doctor to review. It is best to notify
your pharmacy at least 5 business days before you would run out of medication. If you call the office needing
refill of medication within 48 hours, you will be charged $25. MISSED/LATE APPOINTMENTS:
Missed appointments not canceled within 24 hours notice will be charged. Charges for missed appointments are
usually not covered by insurance.
MEDICAL FORMS/PATIENT REQUESTED LETTERS:
Charges to complete medical forms and patient requested letters are not usually not covered by insurance
companies and are the responsibility of the patient. Fees may vary according to the length and complexity of the
form or requested letter. Payment is due prior to picking up or mailing the requested document.
If am being treated by Joseph Walters, MD or Richard Ford, MD:
* I understand, they are NON-PARTICIPATING in my insurance plan, including MEDICARE/MEDICAID.
* I agree to accept full responsibility for payment of fees incurred at the time of each visit.
* I will be made available necessary billing/procedure codes for the type of treatment I receive from Dr.
Walters/Ford, which can be submitted to my insurance carrier for any reimbursement for which I may be eligible. Scott, LPC
If I am being treated by Catherine Scott, LPC:
*If I am 'self-pay', payment will be due at the time service is rendered.
*If I have insurance, I acknowledge that LPA may disclose protected health information to my insurance carrier
or other third party responsible for my bill as required in order to receive reimbursement for services provided.
* Medical Insurance: We strongly urge you to thoroughly review your insurance plan prior to your appointment.
The type of plan chosen by you and/or your employer determines your insurance benefits. We will electronically
(or paper) file your medical insurance claims and bill your medical insurance for treatment you receive. However,
in the event the insurance company does not pay the bill, the balance will become the patient’s responsibility.
*I authorize and request assignment of benefits to be paid directly to LPA. I acknowledge and agree to pay any
unpaid balances not covered by my insurance policy, including deductibles, co-payments, and unauthorized or out
of network services. Copayments and deductibles are to be paid at each appointment.
*Our staff is happy to help with insurance questions related to how a claim was filed, or regarding information the
carrier may need to process a claim. Specific coverage issues, however, can only be addressed by your insurance
company. Please contact Customer Service at the number listed on your insurance card. PROFESSIONAL FEE SCHEDULE:
45-50 min session (psychotherapy +/- meds) = $175
20-25 min session (brief therapy/med management) = $120
10 min session (medication check up) = $90
Fees are expected to be paid at the time of service, unless prior arrangements have been made through the front
