Financial Policy and Administrative Services Fee


We are committed to meeting your healthcare needs. Our goal is to keep your insurance and financial arrangements as simple as possible. In order to accomplish this in a cost-effective manner, we ask you to adhere to the following guidelines and choose a plan that meets your needs:

  1. It is your responsibility to provide us with your current address, telephone number and insurance information at each visit.
  2. It is your responsibility to confirm with your insurance company that our physicians participate in your insurance plan.
  3. You are ultimately responsible for payment for services you receive from our office.  Any non-payment, including non-payment of co-pays and returned checks will result in a $35 billing fee in addition to the balance owed.
  4. Canceling an appointment less than 24 hours in advance or no-showing an appointment will result in the following charges: $35 for a regular office visit, $75 for an annual physical and $100 for an ECHO, Ultrasound or Flexible Sigmoidoscopy. 3 late cancellations or no-shows in one year may result in your dismissal from our practice.
  5. The vast majority of prescription refill requests will require an office visit.  “Emergency” prescription refills maybe subject to a $35 fee.

Our office collects an Administrative Service Fee (ASF) of $6.00 on each visit or $65.00 annually to cover the cost of certain administrative services we may provide that are not covered by your insurance. Examples of these services are forms and letters such as the following:

  1. Disability/FMLA/Biometric/Health form(s)
  2. Medication/Procedural Prior Authorization
  3. School/Sports Physical/Camp form(s)
  4. Insurance related pre-certifications
  5. Life Insurance form(s)
  6. Parking/Handicap permit(s)
  7. Other miscellaneous forms
  8. Medical record reproduction

You are not required to pay the Administrative Service Fee; however, if you choose not to pay the optional fee, you will be charged for all administrative services, as needed. You will not be given a chance to pay the ASF at the time you request any administrative service above. Additionally, if you have any Administrative items pending, you may not change your designation.

I understand that with this decision, I will pay for services as I need them at a minimum rate of $60 per form/drafted letter and $35 per prior authorization per medication.



I acknowledge the terms of the financial policy and administrative service fee. I understand that failure to comply with the policies may result in my dismissal from Family Practice Center, PC.
