    If a statement cycle has been mailed and it has been 30 days with no payment, the unpaid balance is considered past due.

    Same day appointments are often available especially for acute illness or injuries. Physicals and certain other appointments or procedures may book out a week or more.
  7. Do I have to pay for services before I see the physician?
    As required by insurance companies, we expect payment of “co-payments” before seeing the physician. Non-contracted insurance and deductibles are due and payable at the time of service.
  8. Can a Primary Care Associates physician see me if the physician is not part of my health insurance network?
    Yes, our physicians will provide services to patients covered by any insurance plans, including out of network insurances. However, the patient is expected to pay for any out-of-network costs incurred according to their insurance benefit plan. Please read your plan carefully so you know how much you will be expected to pay towards your deductible or coinsurance when obtaining services from an out-of-network physician.
