To assist our patients, California Gastroenterology Associates has enrolled in numerous insurance programs. We are happy to work within the contracted obligations of your plan as long as we know what those obligations are. We encourage our patients to contact their insurance carrier discuss the stipulations of the patient's plan, such as how often a service can be rendered, where the service can be rendered and most importantly if the service is covered under the plan. Below is an outline of our billing policies and procedures.
- We require that any amount due be paid at the time of check-in. Please contact our billing office at:
(559) 673-4000 or ask to speak with an on-site billing representative should you have any questions or concerns regarding your bill.
- The fee for a returned check is $35.00. Checks will no longer be accepted from a patient who has had a returned check.
- Any patient account balance over 120 days past due, who either does not have a financial payment contract or who is failing to meet the terms of their contract, will be turned over to an outside collections agency.
