Information for patients with Medicare

VSC is a Medicare-participating provider and accepts assignments on all Medicare claims. This means we accept the approved Medicare reimbursement amount. However, patients are still responsible for any deductibles or coinsurances (20% of the approved fee). If you have Medicare and have questions about the cost-share arrangement, please feel free to ask one of our insurance specialists.


Information for patients with other insurance carriers

If you have another insurance provider, we are happy to file a claim for you. We are required by law to bill for amounts considered to be “Patient Responsibility” by insurance companies, including Medicare.

If you are covered by a managed-care (HMO, PPO, POS) plan, your co-payment must be collected at the time of service. This is a contractual requirement of insurers. We accept most major credit cards.

If your managed-care plan requires a precertification number, we will assist you in getting the approval for your services.

You will receive a monthly statement for all charges considered “Patient Responsibility.” Our policy is for all accounts to be settled in 90 days. You may contact our billing department if you need special arrangements. Again, we accept most major credit cards.
