Appointments

Normally, between three and six office visits are needed to fit and fabricate a prosthesis, (Consult-Cast, Fitting, Delivery, Follow Up). * Custom-made appliances take time to manufacture properly. Therefore, it may take additional visits to ensure the proper fit of your device.

Referral Policy

If you have an insurance plan that requires a referral, it is your responsibility to obtain an up-to-date referral from your primary care physician before your appointment. If you are an established patient, you must notify us of any changes in your insurance status so that proper referral can be obtained. If a referral has not been received by the time of your appointment you may need to reschedule your visit until a current referral can be obtained or pay privately for the visit. We will be happy to reimburse you if a referral is received after your visit.

If you are unsure about your benefits or our referral policy, please ask a receptionist, who will be happy to help you.

Financial Policy

In order to better serve you and to avoid misunderstanding, we would like to explain our office financial policy. Whether insurance is involved or not, the responsibility for payment ultimately belongs to the patient (parent, guardian, insured, etc.) Please make sure that our office has a copy of your insurance cards and, as a courtesy, we will file your insurance claims for you. At the conclusion of your visit we will collect any applicable co-pays, co-insurance and/or deductibles. We will also collect for services not payable by your insurance company. We accept many forms of payment including cash, check, and Visa/Mastercard.
