- Alaska Digestive Center fees cover the use of the facility only, and do not include pathology or physician fees. You will be billed separately for these services.
- As a courtesy, we will bill your primary and secondary insurance carriers or governmental agency directly for Alaska Digestive Center's charges.
- Alaska Digestive Center is state-licensed and accepts Medicare, Medicaid and most major insurances.
- Bring your most current insurance, Medicare, or public assistance card with you on the day of your procedure. If you have more than one insurance carrier, we will also need accurate secondary billing information.
- Please be aware of any admission policies your insurance plan may have. You or your physician may have to adhere to certain requirements in order to insure maximum reimbursement. Failure to obtain pre-authorization, physician referral, or a second opinion may greatly reduce or eliminate your benefits.
- Be prepared to pay any co-pay or deductible amounts on the day of your procedure. Patients who do not have insurance coverage or those having a procedure not covered by insurance, are also required to pay their charges in advance.
- We realize, however, that at times you may require special financial arrangements. In these instances, please phone our office prior to your procedure to discuss alternative methods of payment. We accept cash, cashier's checks, credit cards, and personal checks with a valid I.D.
- Please feel free to contact our business office at any time if you have questions or concerns regarding the facility charges, the financial policy, or billing procedures.
