Family Medicine of Scottsdale

Jessica T Ellsworth MD & Denise C Schweda MD 

Patients are fully financially responsible for the charges incurred during visits.

  

When insurance benefits are utilized as a form of payment patients will be required to place a credit card on file with the office to use for any balances not paid by insurance per the office's financial policy.   If a credit card is not on file patients will be required to pay for that visit at the time of service and may be reimbursed back anything that insurance pays after the visit.

Patients are responsible to present current insurance at the time of service when seeking to use their insurance benefits. Any insurance claim denials based on coverage not in effect are the patient's full responsibility.


Unpaid balances must be paid within 30 days and before the next visit, billing fees are assessed for multiple bills sent. Any unpaid bills greater than 90 days will be sent to collections.

Annual Physical's are designed to be preventative in nature.  Some Insurance plans will not cover additional  problem orientated services  on the same day of service as an annual physical.  This can include both known issues, new diagnosis and prescriptions.

It is up to the patient to know what their plan will allow as the patient will be responsible for any services  not covered by insurance.  

Annual Physicals

Financial Consent for service

Prescriptions will be given at office appointments. If you are running out of medicine, it is time for a follow-up appointment. We do not treat people over the phone. If you are ill enough to need a prescription medication, you need to be evaluated by a medical professional. If you want to participate in a mail order prescription benefit program, we will be happy to give you the appropriate prescription. You will then need to supply this prescription to the appropriate companies.

Prescriptions


It is important to us that you are seen in a timely and unhurried fashion. For this reason, we do not double or triple book the appointment schedule. Consequently, there is the potential a patient will not be scheduled because there are no appointments available for that day. There is a $50.00 fee for any missed appointments, due before attending the next appointment. Any appointment canceled with less than 12 hours notice will be considered a missed appointment. Patients will be discharged from the practice with more than three missed appointments.
