What are the financial & payment policies for Alliance?

Your insurance contract is between you, your employer and/or the insurance company.  Not all services are covered by all contracts.  It is your responsibility to know your benefits.  Any questions or complaints regarding your coverage should be directed to your insurance carrier.  It is your responsibility to know if your plan has co-pays, deductibles and co-insurance, which are all patient responsibility to pay. We ask that you bring your insurance card, photo ID and an updated list of medications to every appointment.

All patient balances are due within 30 days from the statement date unless special arrangements have been made with our Business Office.  You may pay your bill by check, cash or credit card.  If you are unable to pay your full bill within 30 days, you may make payment arrangements through the Business Office by calling 414-727-0910 ext 111 or ext 112. Payment plans MUST be pre-approved and noted in our billing system prior to any partial payments being accepted.  If partial payments are received without prior arrangements being made our billing office will contact you. Our office will mail out monthly statements.  If an account receives 3 statements and there is no patient payment activity on the account, and no payment arrangement made with our Business Office, your account may be referred to an outside collection agency.
