Financial Policy

As a result of our sincere desire to base all medical decisions on what is best for the patient, not what is best for the insurance company, we are no longer contracted with any insurance carriers, including Medicare.  Dr. Alison Jackson is considered an “out of network” provider, and is “Opted Out” of Medicare contracting.

 

  1. All charges must be paid at the time of service and our treatment fees are the same for all patients, refardless of insurance coverage or not.
  2. The contract with your insurance company to pay for a portion of your medical care is between you and your insurance company. By eliminating costs associated with billing, claim denials, re-submission, collection risks, and other managed care costs, we can provide patients a fair price for services without the administrative hassles and bureaucracy.
  3. For your benefit, we will always provide you with a superbill that contains the necessary codes, for you to submit on your own to your insurance carrier for reimbursement. We recommend you contact your insurance carrier to verify your benefits so you will have a basic understanding of how your insurance will reimburse you for services provided by our office.
  4. Medicare: Alison Jackson has chosen to “Opt Out” of Medicare.  All patients who are on Medicare, or are eligible for Medicare, must sign the federally mandated “Private Contract” in order to receive services at our clinic.  All services must be paid at the time of service and Dr. Jackson, nor the patient may file a claim to Medicare directly for reimbursement, your individual secondary insurance may cover some of the services rendered, and you will receive a superbill to send to that company.
