Insurance and Billing

Check with your insurance carrier prior to your visit to make sure that Northland Gastroenterology PA is part of your network. Your health insurance is a valuable asset; you should know and understand completely the terms of your contract. Because of the number of insurance companies and plans available, we cannot keep track of individual plan definitions and requirements (pre-authorizations, pre-certifications, co-pays, waiting periods, and so on). The more you know about your own plan, the greater the benefit you can enjoy. If you have questions about your insurance coverage or the services that are covered, contact your insurance company directly. Their customer service department will be happy to answer any questions you might have. The number should be listed on your insurance card.

  • Please bring to every visit:
    • Your insurance card
    • Government issued photo ID
    • Co-payments are due the day of your visit

If you do not have insurance, call our business office to arrange payment. You are responsible for your bill, whether or not you have insurance. You will be asked to make some type of payment if there is an insurance delay. Overpayments will be refunded as quickly as possible.
