Associated Endocrinologists’ general policy is that payment for services is required on the day of your appointment. However, we recognize that there are times when neither you nor we are aware of specific copays or coinsurance for which you are responsible. We do ask that you pay what you believe you will be responsible for at check-out.
To help manage patient balances as well as make payment more convenient for you, Associated Endocrinologists requires each of our patients/legal guardians maintain a credit (or debit) card on file with our office.
This payment method will only be used in the event that your account has a remaining balance after your insurance has been billed and payments, if any, have been received.
You will be asked to present your credit card / HSA card at Check-in. Credit card information is maintained in a secure and confidential portal at Chase Bank. Rest assured that Associated Endocrinologists does NOT retain a copy of your credit card number. Payments using this card will only take place in the situation stated above.
This authorization remains in effect until cancelled by you. An expired credit card does not cancel this authorization. To cancel, I will give a 60-day notification to Associated Endocrinologists in writing and my account must not have an open balance.
