Snell Prosthetics & Orthotics understands the tremendous burden that can be created by healthcare expenses. We will make every attempt to try to ease that burden. We ask that our patients understand the complex and costly process that is involved in fabricating customized prosthetic and orthotic devices.
We will be happy to assist you in working out a payment plan, helping to file insurance, or discussing possible alternative avenues of funding. However, we cannot begin the fabrication of a device until insurance verification is completed or other financial arrangements are made.
Patients covered by a private insurance company are asked to pay their co-payment and the deductible in advance. Patients with two insurance companies are not required to make a down payment; however, the deductible amount may be required.
It is our policy, in the majority of cases, to accept direct Medicare and Medicaid assignments. In those cases in which we cannot accept assignment, we would ask to have 1/2 paid in advance and 1/2 upon delivery of the finished device. If special arrangements are needed, we will attempt to work out a plan for you before work is begun on the prosthesis or orthosis.
Payment is not required for verifiable worker’s compensation recipients. Veterans must present a C-card or appropriate authorization from the Veterans Health Administration.
