Who can I talk to about addressing billing questions?

Regular Billing: You can reach out to our billing department at (608) 647-6161 ext. 4130 or 4137.

FMLA/Disability/Work Compensation Inquiries: Call us at (608) 647-6161 ext. 4218.

I just made a payment but I got another invoice. Why?

Our billing cycle is every 30 days, and perhaps, you made your payment while your invoice was in the process of being printed or it had already been processed and was placed in the mail. If you have any questions about payments and invoices, we recommend that you speak to our specialists at the billing department.

Why do I see “Pending Insurance Payment” on my invoice?

It may take up to two billing cycles for insurance to apply payments to your account, pending on the timing of the invoices. We recommend that you make a payment based on what your “estimated insurance” won’t pay, which will be noted on your invoice. Making an effort to apply payments to your account is recommended, but if you’re unsure of what your balance is, please give us a call at (608) 647-6161 ext. 4130 or 4137.

Appointments

What should I bring with me to my appointment?

If you are a new patient to our clinic:

  • Transfer your medical records from your previous facility to our clinic, prior to your appointment. This step is very important if you have a long medical history. Having all the information available for your first appointment will help our clinician and make it easier for you to get to know each other better.
  • Arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment and register on the first floor. Our staff will guide you on which floor you’ll need to check in with.
  • Bring all of your insurance cards. You can also take your new Patient Packet form and Credit Card on file form with you if you have no insurance yet.
  • Please be reminded to present your photo ID to help our staff identify you in the waiting room for your appointment.
  • Make sure to have a list of your current medications.

If you are already a patient and established a connection with us:

  • Arrive 20 minutes prior to your appointment.
  • Register on the 1st floor, prior to checking in at the reception desk.
  • Bring all your insurance cards.
