Do you accept Private Insurance?Yes, even through your insurance policy may cover a portion or all of your medical expenses, our policy is to expect payment from you in full the day of your visit unless prior arrangements have been made. We file your insurance company as a courtesy to you; however you are responsible for your charges. Any insurance payments made directly to SeMRHI will be credited to your account and will be reflected on your account.
How much does an office visit cost?We base our fees on the amount of time spent with you and degree of medical difficulty your particular care involves. Any lab tests ordered by your doctor will be an additional charge. Our fee structure is consistent with those in other medical offices. Payment is requested for office services at the time they are rendered. This keeps our cost down and our fees low.
