Financial Responsibility

Financial Responsibility

Our practice is not contracted with any insurance providers.

Patients are responsible for payment in full prior to surgery. The office can provide records and procedure codes for patients who later wish to attempt reimbursement from their insurance companies.

We accept most major forms of payment with regard to your surgery deposit as well as financing options through a third party company. However, the remaining balance must be paid using cash, check or wire transfer.

Please feel free to contact our office. We will do our best to provide you information to help with your financial planning.

Financial Responsibility – No Surprises Act

The No Surprises Act took effect on January 1, 2022 and provides patients financial protections against surprise medical bills, and prohibits balance billing for certain out-of-network (OON) care.  Individuals with Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid/MediCal, Indian Health Services, VA health care, or TRICARE insurance plans are not covered under the No Surprises Act because these federal insurance programs have existing protections in place to minimize large, unforeseen bills.  Deschamps-Braly Clinic (DBC) is an out-of-network provider and does not have any contract with any health insurance company.  DBC will provide patients with a scheduled surgical appointment with a Surprise Billing Protection Form.  This form contains a Good Faith Estimate of charges for the procedures and services requested, a clear statement that consent is optional, and by signing the form, the patient agrees to pay more for out-of-network care.
