The Kirklin Clinic at Acton Road is committed to providing the highest quality health care, as well as outstanding service concerning insurance and patient billing. We care about you and will help you navigate through the billing process.
Whether you are covered by Medicare, Medicare supplement, Medicaid, or private health insurance, your policy is a contract between you and the insurance company. The Kirklin Clinic at Acton Road is not a party to that contract and has no control over its terms, so it is very important for you to communicate with your employer or health care representative regarding eligibility and determination of coverage.
As a participating provider with your health care plan, our staff will obtain the necessary pre-certifications and authorizations. Out-of-pocket to you are typically limited to co-payments, co-insurance, and/or deductibles. Many times, patients choose to come to our facility even though they are “out of network.” In this case, the insurance company is billed as a courtesy; however, any charges left unpaid are the patient’s responsibility.
Insurance claims, both primary and secondary, are processed by our knowledgeable staff. At The Kirklin Clinic at Acton Road we are dedicated to working closely with you and your insurance carrier to secure the maximum benefits allowed.
If you are non U.S. citizen or resident and don’t have any U.S. accredited insurance, payment options are available. Please contact us so that we may provide all the information you need to complete your payment.
