We are a participating provider with Original Medicare along with the Medicare Advantage plans listed below. We will file your Medicare claim for you and Medicare will then send the payment directly to Summit. At the same time, a Medicare Explanation of Benefits (EOB) will be mailed to your home address. We will also file supplemental policies on your behalf. Any deductible or co-insurance amount is your responsibility at the time services are rendered.
The Health Insurance Marketplace (formerly known as the Health Insurance Exchange), was established as part of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 as a new way for individuals, families, and small businesses to purchase health insurance. We accept certain plans offered on the Marketplace.
Please inform us at the time your appointment is scheduled if you are in a PPO or HMO managed care plan. Any co-payment required by your insurance plan is due at the time services are rendered. Summit Medical Group participates in many major plans, but because we consider many factors before joining a plan, we do not participate in every plan available on today's insurance market. If we do not participate with your plan, and you choose to see our physicians outside the plan, your insurance provider may reduce your benefits or not cover any of the costs of your care.
Although Summit gladly files your medical insurance on your behalf, medical insurance is ultimately a contract between the patient and his/her insurance company. It is the patient's responsibility to monitor the processing and payment of claims. After payment is received from the insurance carrier, any outstanding balances after your insurance provider has paid its share become the responsibility of the patient. If your insurance company is not one with which our physicians participate, any balance remaining on the account for sixty days from the date the insurance is filed becomes the patient's responsibility.
Payment for healthcare services at any Summit Medical Group facility is due at the time the service is rendered in accordance with insurance contracts.
Any copay, deductible, and/or coinsurance should be paid in full during the visit.
What if I can’t pay for my visit on the day I receive the service?
Summit values all customers and understands that patients may have unforeseen situations that prohibit full payment at the time of service, As a courtesy to you, Summit offers a payment plan option with the following terms:
|$51.00 to $250.99||5 month maximum|
|$251.00 and greater||12 month maximum|
In the event full payment cannot be rendered at the time of service, the terms for monthly payments are below:
- Payments must be made via monthly auto‐draft from a debit or credit card. We are unable to offer “pay as you go” arrangements.
- A $25 minimum monthly auto-draft payment amount is required
- Payments accepted outside of a formal auto‐draft payment plan agreement do not prevent future collection action.
- There are no processing or interest fees for payments.
If these terms cannot be met, we do accept VISA, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express.
