  • All medications that you take, including refrigerated and over-the-counter medications, as well as herbals and supplements, in their original bottles.

Payment is expected at the time of service. We accept cash, check, VISA and Mastercard. If we are contracted with your insurance company, you will need to pay your co-pay at the time of your visit. This amount will be indicated on your insurance card. We are contractually bound with the insurance companies to collect this at the time of service. We will then file your insurance claim. However, payment for the account remains your responsibility.

If you have insurance that we are not contracted with, you will be asked to make full payment, and file your own insurance claim. Patients scheduling procedures will be required to pay a percentage at the time of service.

Please maintain your account with our office in good standing. Should your account become delinquent, your account may be turned over to an outside collection agency. Should this become necessary, you will be responsible for all additional expenses incurred to collect this outstanding debt and you will be discharged from the practice.

Your medical records are strictly confidential. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) restricts us from releasing any information without your written permission, except to other providers, payors, and other specified entities, as outlined in our Notice of Privacy Practices.

Labwork and testing are typically ordered to be done right before your scheduled visit, so your results can be discussed when you see the Doctor. Occasionally, your Doctor will order labs shortly after or between visits to see how you are doing. Your Doctor will review the results and you will receive prompt notification of any results that require immediate attention. If your results are normal, or as expected, and no changes are required, you may not be notified. If you wish, you may call the office for results.

Prescription refills will only be authorized during normal office hours. For your convenience, we have a Prescription Refill Line - it is option #3 when you call 812-375-0272. You will need to leave your name, date of birth, medication to be refilled by name, strength, amount (90 day, 30 day), instructions for taking medicine, physician, pharmacy and your phone number for any questions. This line is checked periodically during the day by our clinical staff. Please allow 48 hours for request to be completed. Patients must be seen by our physicians within the recommended time frame for follow-up, or you will need an appointment before refills can be authorized.
