Insurance Copays are Due at Check-In
Many insurance plans require an office visit copay. As part of our contractual agreement with your insurance plan, we are required to collect copays at the time of service. Please arrive for your visit with a valid form of payment. We accept cash, checks, MasterCard, Visa, and Discover Card.
Please allow at least 2 business days to process medication refills. For a prescription to be renewed, a review of medical records, labs, or other information may be required before your doctor can provide approval. If your physician is not in the office when your request is made, this may delay your refill. Northland Family Care physicians make every effort to accommodate special or critical situations. We ask that you contact your pharmacy for all refill requests. Your pharmacy will then contact our office for refill authorization. If your medication requires prior authorization from your insurance company, our office will promptly process the paperwork. PLEASE NOTE: Our physicians will not prescribe or refill pain medications, antibiotics or other medications after hours.
Failure to Keep an Appointment
Like most medical offices, we often have to turn away patients due to full physician schedules. Because of this, we do charge for appointments not kept unless they are cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the appointment time.
FMLA and Other Medical Forms
Please be aware that paperwork from your employer or insurance company does require a significant amount of office resources to ensure accuracy and completeness. Our office charges within the guidelines imposed by the State of Missouri to complete these forms. We process these requests quickly upon payment for their completion. Email or call us at 816-781-4740.
