All of the charges for your radiation therapy will be billed by Minneapolis Radiation Oncology, PA., at the end of your course of treatments. Your charges will be based on the complexity and duration of services.
We provide a number of services that may occur when you are not present. For example, you may notice a bill for a service that occurred on a date when you were not in the department. Typically, computer planning, dose calculations, and physics checks do not require your presence. However, due to insurance regulations, we must bill these services the date they were 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. We also accept Visa and MasterCard. We will file all insurance claims (primary and secondary), and release protected health information, provided we have the complete and accurate information, including your signature, on file.
For your initial visit, you will be billed for a consultation or office visit. 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 company 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 she is obtaining a referral for your treatments.
Please contact our business office and/or your insurance company with any questions or concerns you may have. You can reach us at 952-920-4915, Ext. #108.
