Family Medicine Associates participates is a large number of medical plans and frequently enrolls in new ones. Before you make an appointment at FMA, please contact your insurance company and complete the following:
- Confirm FMA’s participation in the plan in which you are enrolled
- Choose a physician at Family Medicine Associates as your primary care physician
- Please bring your insurance ID card to all office visits
- Please notify us immediately of any change in your insurance.
If we participate in your insurance plan, we will bill your insurance company directly. You are responsible to pay deductibles as well as charges incurred for services that are not covered benefits of your insurance plan. If authorization is required for the visit, but cannot be obtained, you will be responsible for payment. Any outstanding balance owed after insurance payment is made is due as soon as FMA notices you of the amount.
Please familiarize yourself with the rules of your plan. Sometimes routine services, such as physical examinations, are not covered. Frequently, prior authorization is required for emergency treatment and referrals. Co-payment amounts may vary. These rules can even vary within a plan each year. It is your responsibility to know and understand the requirements of your particular plan, but we are happy to help address any questions you might have.
If you have any questions, or should financial problems arise, please contact our billing staff at 978-750-3651.
