Billing and Insurance Questions
All of your charges (both the professional and the technical portion) for your radiation therapy will be billed by Minneapolis Radiation Oncology, P.A. at the end of your course of treatments. The charges for services are based on the complexity and duration of services.
There are a number of services that do not require the presence of the patient. You may notice billing dates on your statement that you know you were not in the department. Typically, computer planning, dose calculations, and physics checks do not require the patient to be in the department. Due to insurance regulations, we must bill these services the date they are rendered. Additional co-payments may be applied to these services.
Minneapolis Radiation Oncology, P.A. accepts most major insurance policies, Medicare, Medicaid, and private payment. Visa and MasterCard are accepted as well. We will file all insurance claims (primary and secondary), releasing protected health information, provided we have the complete and accurate information, including your signature, on file.
For your initial visit, a consultation or office visit charge will be billed. If you have a co-payment for office visits, a co-payment would apply. Please pay your co-payment at the time of this visit. For your radiation therapy, all additional charges will be billed under radiation therapy codes. Some patients have co-payments per date of treatment. Please contact your insurance to verify if you have any questions regarding co-payments. These additional co-payments will be billed to you after your insurance company processes the claim.
If your insurance plan requires you to see a physician who is participating in your specific plan, YOU MUST CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE CARRIER TO VERIFY THAT OUR PHYSICIAN IS IN YOUR NETWORK. Some examples of these plans may have the following listed on your insurance card: PCP, POS, PPO, Network, Specialty Network, and Primary Care. GOING OUTSIDE YOUR NETWORK MAY CAUSE YOU TO TAKE ON LARGE FINANCIAL RISKS.
Many plans require referrals. If you are assigned a primary care clinic, you will need a referral for your treatments. Notify your primary care physician that you will be receiving radiation therapy treatments. Please talk to the receptionist to verify that he/she is obtaining a referral for your treatments.
