Mid Illini Surgical Associates collects co-payments at the time of service.

Your Responsibilities include:

  1. Know your co-payment amount
  2. Know Pre-Authorization requirements for tests and/or surgery
  3. Know the hospital(s) that you can use for services
  4. Ensure that we have your most current insurance information

Your health is important to us and we want you to receive the maximum benefits from your insurance plan.  We do our best to stay up to date with  plans, policies, and procedures, but ultimately it is the patient's responsiblity for knowing their individual plan, coverage and requirements. It is the patient's responsibility for co-pays, deductibles and any balance not covered by insurance.

Billing

Mid Illini Surgical Associates will submit a payment claim for services received to the patient's insurance company as a courtesy.  It is the patient's responsibility for co-pays, deductibles and any balance not covered by insurance.  Patients will receive statements for any balance due on their account once their insurance carrier has processed submitted claims.

* It is the patient's responsibility to provide all accurate and current information regarding insurance and be aware of the benefits & coverage of the insurance plan.  Inaccurate information may affect the insurance carrier's payment for services received.


Uninsured patients are responsible for making a partial payment for their first office visit.   Further payment arrangements will be discussed with you by our billing department for office visit balances and any other services that may be needed.

Payment arrangements that are NOT made may result in the rescheduling or canceling of your appointment until payments can be successfully arranged.
