This page is provided as a general guide to patient financial obligations and Boulder Valley Ear, Nose & Throat Associates policies. If you have any additional questions, please give us a call at 303.443.2771 and ask to speak with one of our billing specialists.
We recommend familiarizing yourself with your individual insurance policy’s financial requirements and details prior to your visit. Please direct questions regarding your insurance policy, or coverage, to your insurance company. You can often find the member number on the back of your insurance card.
Payment for self-pay patients is due at the time that you receive service from our practice.
Co-pays specified by your plan are collected when you arrive for your visit. Your insurance company requires us to help you reschedule for another appointment if you are unable to pay your copay at the time of your scheduled visit with us. To avoid this potential issue, please make sure to bring in one of the following forms of payment (credit card, check or cash).
Insurance Coverage – Are you covered for your appointment with us?
Prior to making an appointment with our office, we strongly recommend calling your insurance company to ensure that your specific policy is in network with our office. Plan restrictions can include geographical limitations, or may limit you to a specific group of authorized providers. If you have an Affordable Care Plan, it is highly recommended that you double check with your plan for coverage.
Boulder Valley Ear, Nose & Throat participates with most major insurance companies. Contracted insurance companies will be billed for charges incurred during your visit.
Should you carry a non-contracted insurance policy, you will be responsible for paying any charges in full at the time of your visit.
Your insurance may require that you have a referral prior to visiting a specialist. If you are not sure, please contact your insurance company. Failure to follow your policy’s rules, will result in additional out of pocket expenses. You are responsible for obtaining referrals, and will be billed for the full balance should you fail to obtain and provide the necessary referral.
If your plan requires a referral to see a specialist, you must first:
- Contact your primary care physician’s office.
- Obtain a referral from your PCP to see a specialist in your network.
- If the specialist refers you to another specialist, you must first obtain another referral from your PCP for the new specialist.
We have a 30 day billing cycle. Any balances are due 30 days from receipt
