Payments & Insurance Billing:
As a courtesy to our patients we will submit insurances claims. Please be aware that some or perhaps all of the services rendered may or may not be covered. If your insurance company denies payment, you will be billed.

Please bring your insurance card(s) for each visit. Please be aware it is your responsibility to know your co-pay and/or deductible information, along with information on covered services. If your insurance cannot be verified, payment in full is due at the time of service. Once your insurance has been verified, we require payment of co-payments as defined by your primary carrier. We accept cash, checks and major credit cards. A minimum of $35.00 fee will be assessed on all returned checks. If you do not have medical insurance, payment is due at time of service. If you need special arrangements, please contact our office manager, prior to your appointment.

We are currently participating in the following insurance plans:
Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield
MedNet/United Healthcare/Harvard Pilgrim
Martin’s Point / Tricare Standard and Prime from US Family Health Plans

Tricare Standard from HealthNet Federal Services
Maine Community Health Options
Aetna / Cigna / Great West
Maine Care (not managed care)
Medicare (currently not accepting new patients)

Minors need to be accompanied by a parent, especially on the first visit

Appointment Cancellations/No show policy (IMPORTANT PLEASE READ) :

Please give 24 hours notice if an appointment needs to be re-scheduled or canceled.  Not showing up for an appointment hinders our ability to care for you as well as others  -  because of this, three (3) “no-shows” could be grounds for dismissal from the practice.  We charge a no-show fee of $35 payable prior to or on your next appointment.  Patients that no-show on their initial appointment will need to pay the $35 charge before another appointment will be offered.
