Frequently Asked Questions About Fee Estimates
Can I estimate fees after insurance?
Yes, you can use the form to estimate balances after insurance or self pay fees (if you do not have insurance).
What is a CPT Code?
A CPT code is a universal code that is part of a coding system used by all medical providers, and includes every service that can be provided to a patient. This code can be obtained from your referring clinician. When describing the procedure, you are required to provide CPT code(s) so that you can receive the most accurate quote.
How long does it take to receive a quote?
You will be contacted within two business days by the method you select on the form. Your choices are phone, email, or postal mail.
How accurate is my quote?
A quote is not a guarantee of the final amount due. The estimate we provide is based on the average charge for the same or similar encounters. While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our quotes, the total charges could increase or decrease depending on the actual services that are required to carry out your clinician’s orders. Different tests or additional tests that may be deemed necessary by your clinician are not included in this estimate.
