Insurance and Billing - 817-926-0269

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: -Health Insurance Coverage for Colorectal Cancer (CRC) Screening

Services GANT bills for:  We will file claims for gastroenterology professional services related to your visits and procedures performed by GANT medical staff at our offices, endoscopy centers, or area hospitals.  You may receive bills for related services, such as: anesthesia, lab, radiology as well as fees for the facilities used (endoscopy centers or hospitals) from other medical providers

Insurances GANT contracts with: Our practice accepts most major insurances, however, we are NOT contracted providers for: Humana, Tricare, First Health and Aetna Medicare HMO.  Many times, benefits for services by non-contracted providers are reduced or paid as "out-of-network", resulting in an increase in your financial responsibility.  To determine if our physicians participate in your health plan, please check your plan's provider listing.

Amounts due from insurance: After a service has been provided, we will bill your insurance carrier. Your insurance carrier will review the bill and, in most cases, pay their portion within 90 days.   When we file a claim on your  behalf, it is with the understanding that your insurance company will pay GANT directly.  If your insurance company does not pay in a timely manner, you will be responsible for the balance due.

Amounts due from you: You are responsible for payment of all deductibles, co-insurance, co-pays and non-covered services.        For procedures, you will be asked to pay your anticipated responsibility prior to the date of the procedure.  For office visits, patient amounts are due at time of service

Statements post-insurance processing: You will receive a statement from us ONLY AFTER we have had communication from your insurance regarding payment, coverage denial, etc.  We will often appeal coverage denials before you receive a statement.  Therefore, our statement communicates your POST-INSURANCE financial responsibility.

We realize insurance benefits are confusing.  Our support staff will do its upmost to help you understand your insurance benefits related to your visits.  However, the ultimate responsibility for understanding your insurance benefits - and for payment - rests with you.
