    • Some services have what is called first dollar coverage which means that the insurance company will pay the first dollar and not apply any deductible or copay to your service- this is typical with wellness.

      Services that do not have first dollar coverage typically have a copay or deductible and co-insurance that are the part you agreed to be responsible for when you signed up for your insurance.  If you feel like you should not have a balance you should call your insurance company immediately and then contact us or any provider with the information you received.

      Some services are not a benefit of your insurance plan, therefore, they are not paid and remain your responsibility.
