In our attempt to provide the highest quality services for our patients, the Woman's Clinic will file an insurance claim with most insurance providers. TennCare is not routinely accepted by the Woman’s Clinic, P.A. You may ask about an exception to this policy through the Woman’s Clinic insurance department and in doing so would agree to adhere to any/all qualification guidelines. If your insurance requires a copay for a visit, you will be expected to pay as you register at the front desk for your appointment. Our patients are required to assign the insurance company payments directly to the Woman's Clinic for services rendered. If a problem were to arise with a claim, our staff will make every reasonable effort to resolve issues or misunderstandings. However, please remember that the contract for payment is between you and the insurance carrier and our staff is not responsible for settling disputes for non paid services. The patient account's responsible party is liable for charges not covered or denied by the insurance carrier. If our patient is not willing to assign the insurance benefits, the services provided will be rendered as self-pay and payment is to be made at the time of service. All self-pay patients are required to bring a minimum amount with them at the time of the appointment. The appointment representative will instruct the patient of the amount that will be required of them at the time of registration. All patient accounts are due and payable in full at the time of services unless suitable arrangements have otherwise been made with our credit department. Accounts with payment arrangements will receive a statement for the balance and payment is required each 30 days on the account to avoid collection activity. Past due accounts will receive a series of phone messages and/or letters. If payment is not received in a timely manner, the account will be reviewed for placement with outside collections and subject to fees incurred by the collection process. Remember, communication is the critical factor is maintaining a healthy financial relationship with our facility. We are more than willing to work with our patients toward reaching a mutually agreeable account resolution.
