CANCELLATION(S): Should you need to or decide to cancel your initial appointment with Dr. Burkhart or any follow-up appointments you have scheduled, the courtesy of a 72-hour notice is appreciated. There will be no charge for appointments canceled 48 hours or more in advance. Late cancellation and no-show fees cannot be billed to your insurance company. Please make every effort to keep your appointment(s). While there are other patients scheduled and on a waiting list to be moved up to fill cancelled appointments, 48 hours is usually required for them to make all the necessary arrangements.
PAYMENT TERMS: If you have signed the New Patient Registration Form (Intake Sheet) and authorized payment of health insurance benefits to Dr. Burkhart, it is agreed that you will ultimately be responsible for any portion of amounts charged, not paid by your insurance company. If Dr. Burkhart is a participating provider with your insurance, he has agreed to an allowed fee amount and after your insurance is billed and paid their portion of that amount, you will be billed for whatever co-insurance and/or co-payment is due from you. Your insurance deductible may be applied and so you may end up being responsible for the full amounts allowed by your insurance company. And should the insurance or eligibility status listed on your Intake Sheet and initially verified by Dr. Burkhart change by the time of your appointment and if by then you have not provided and had verified alternative insurance, you will then be responsible for any and all fee amounts charged.
