Insurance & Authorization

Office Visits
Please be advised that any required insurance authorizations are the patient's responsibility. Please obtain them before calling to make your appointment.  If there is any question regarding your insurance and our office policies and enrollment, please do not hesitate to contact our office. 

X-ray, MRI or CT-Scan Pre-Certifications
If pre-certification is required, our office will obtain it for you. Once our office gets the pre-certification number, we will call you with that number and then you may schedule your appointment for your X-ray, MRI or CT-Scan. Medicare does not require any pre-certification.

Insurance Information
Insurance policies are an agreement between the patient and their insurance company. It is the patient’s responsibility to understand there own insurance policy.  If you do not have the required insurance information at the time of your office visit, even if you have valid medical insurance, you will be asked to pay in full for your office visit if you wish to see the doctor. If you do not wish to pay at that time, you always have the option to reschedule your visit.

Medicare, Workers' Compensation, No-Fault:
The physicians of The Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine accept these insurances as long as complete and valid information is provided. Please contact the office prior to making your appointment with any questions. We will accept faxed authorizations.

Department of Labor Workers’ Compensation:
The Center for the Functional Restoration of the Spine does not accept Department of Labor. 

Co-payments and Deductibles:
It is the patient’s responsibility to understand there own insurance policy.  All office visit fees, if your medical insurance requires them, are due on the day of your appointment and must be collected at that time. Contact your insurance company to confirm if they are necessary and for the specific amount. Full office visit fees payable at the time of appointment are required for patients seeing physicians not in their medical plans and for patients without medical insurance unless arrangements have been made with the office manager prior to scheduling the appointment.
