Financial Policies

This information is provided as a general guide to patient financial obligations and Longmont Hearing & Tinnitus Center’s policies. We recommend familiarizing yourself with your insurance policy’s requirements — financial and otherwise. Please direct questions regarding your policy or coverage to your insurance company. You can often find your member number on the back of your insurance card.

SELF-PAY

Payment for self-pay is due at the time of service.

COPAYS

Copays specified by your plan are collected at the end of your visit; your insurance company requires that you be rescheduled for another appointment if that is not possible. To avoid missing your appointment, please make sure to bring in some form of payment: credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover), check, or cash.

AFFORDABLE CARE PLAN

It is highly recommended that you double-check with your plan for coverage before your appointment. These plans often require a written referral from your primary care physician -- similar to Medicare’s requirement.

CONTRACTED INSURANCES

Longmont Hearing & Tinnitus Center participates with most major insurance companies. Contracted insurance companies will be billed for charges incurred during your visit.

INSURANCE COVERAGE

Prior to making an appointment with our office, we strongly recommend you give your insurance company a call to ensure that your visit will be covered. Insurance providers offer a myriad of plans, and we can not be certain that your specific contracted plan will cover your hearing care needs. Calling your insurance provider to ascertain coverage is always a good idea.

MEDICARE

Medicare covers hearing exams if your doctor or other health care provider orders it out of medical necessity. Medicare requires that a referral from your doctor be faxed to us prior to seeing you for services -- otherwise, you will be responsible for the charges. Medicare specifically excludes coverage of hearing aids and related services.

NON-CONTRACTED INSURANCES

If you carry a non-contracted insurance policy, you will be responsible for paying any charges in full at the time of your visit. We will provide a CMS1500 so you can submit to you insurance provider for reimbursement. Please note that you are responsible for the full balance.

Referral Information

Your insurance may require that you have a referral prior to visiting a specialist. If you are not sure, please contact your insurance provider. Failure to follow your policy’s rules will result in additional out-of-pocket expenses. You are responsible for obtaining referrals, and will be billed the full balance should you fail to obtain and provide the necessary referrals.

HOW TO OBTAIN A REFERRAL:

Statements

We have a 30-day billing cycle. All outstanding balances are due 30 days from the invoice date. If our office has not received payment after 90 days, the balance is considered overdue and will be sent to collections. 

In the event that you have an outstanding circumstance and you cannot pay your invoice, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss options. At Longmont Hearing & Tinnitus Center, we accommodate a variety of financing options through CareCredit and Allegro, making it easy for you to receive the care and hearing assistance products you need.
