New Patient Information

Allergy Care would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our practice and tell you that we are grateful that you have chosen Allergy Care for your healthcare needs. For your information and convenience, we would like to inform you of our policies. Our policies have been made to ensure that we are in full compliance with all third party payer/Medicare guidelines, as well as other state and federal regulations. Co-payments and co-insurance are due at the time of your visit.

Patient Responsibilities:

  • Please provide Allergy Care with your current address, phone number, insurance card and a photo ID.
  • Please contact your insurance company if you do not fully understand your insurance benefits. As a courtesy we do check your insurance benefits. However, we cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies that your insurance company may provide.
  • Please provide the Allergy Care office with any needed referrals from your primary care physician.
  • Please know your insurance plans, policies and guidelines. Every insurance company is different. You should know if your insurance company has a preferred lab or hospital, which we are required to use in order for your services to be covered.
  • Please contact your insurance company to verify that any physician you see in this practice is a participating physician with your insurance company, and with your specific plan.
  • Please know if your deductible has been met. There are many factors that go into calculating your deductible which your insurance company does not make us privy to.
  • If anyone other than a parent is bringing a child (under the age of 18) to our office for a new patient or follow-up visit, please notify our office before the visit. We must have appropriate notarized paperwork/guardianship papers in order for our physicians to see the patient.

Billing Responsibilities:

We will collect your co-payment and co-insurance at the time of your office visit, testing, or allergy shot. We will then file your insurance for you. After your insurance company pays its portion, if any, the entire balance then becomes your responsibility. Our billing department will be more than happy to work with you to set up a payment plan.

There is a $20 charge for returned checks. We do charge for copies of medical records beyond your one free copy.
