Before Your Visit
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT?
- Your completed patient paperwork — which can be downloaded here
- A copy of the disc(s) from your most recent MRI, and
- A driver if you are having a procedure. If you are having a procedure, you WILL NOT be allowed to drive yourself home. Many patients feel relief from the procedure within a few minutes, but this does not mean you are okay to operate a vehicle! Residual numbness and mild sedative effects can be present, and it is dangerous to operate a vehicle immediately after ANY medical procedure. If you come to your appointment without a driver, we will have to reschedule your procedure.
HOW DO I GET A REFERRAL FROM MY DOCTOR?
Many times our patients are referred to us by their doctor or surgeon. If you have decided independently to seek care with us, your first step should be to speak with your primary care physician (PCP) or surgeon about your options. If they are in agreement and you wish to proceed, your provider can contact us at (316) 733-9393 for more information. They can also visit our providers page.
WHAT INSURANCE PLANS DO YOU ACCEPT?
We are in-network with almost all major carriers, and we accept Medicare Advantage Plans, Tricare/Triwest, United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Surgery Plus and some small commercial insurances will require prior authorization before treatment can be provided. All patients must have a consult before we can submit for authorization.
HOW DO I GET PRIOR AUTHORIZATION FROM MY INSURANCE?
ARE THERE ANY UP-FRONT COSTS?
are a self-pay patient (no insurance)
have ever had a collection balance with us
have an insurance deductible that has not been met have a surgery center co-pay
you will be required to pay those costs up front at the time of service. Typically we will notify you before your appointment of any upfront costs. We accept Visa, Mastercard, any HRA funding cards with the Visa or Mastercard logo, Check, Money Order, and cash.
WHY DID I RECEIVE TWO DIFFERENT BILLS FROM YOUR FACILITY?
CAN I PAY BOTH BILLS WITH ONE PAYMENT?
HOW DO I PAY MY BILL?
You can call and pay with a credit card over the phone at any time during business hours, or you can wait to receive your bill in the mail and send payment by check or money order. You may also pay using our online patient portal located here.
WHAT IF I WAS INJURED AT WORK?
WHAT IF I WAS IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT?
If you are in an auto accident and have Auto Insurance benefit coverage, we will file claims with YOUR AUTO INSURANCE ONLY. We CANNOT file claims to the other party’s insurance, even if they have agreed to pay your bills. You must file those claims yourself for reimbursement. We also cannot accept settlement arrangements as an agreement for payment. You must pay up front and the settlement will reimburse your expenses. If you do not have health insurance secondary to your auto insurance, you must pay all costs up front and file for reimbursement with your auto insurance company.
PLEASE NOTE: Even though your Personal Injury Protection and Medical benefits may be being paid by your auto policy, we may have to file the claims with your health insurance company as well. This requires us to obtain any prior authorization, and up front payments for deductibles or copays at the time of service, even if your Auto Insurance benefits have not been exhausted.
