As participating providers of Medicare, we will file claims on your behalf. Under the Medicare program, each patient is responsible for a 20% co-payment after satisfying your Medicare deductible. As a courtesy, unless you request otherwise, we will also file any secondary insurance you may have.

Managed Care (HMO, PPO)

For patient convenience we participate in most major managed care (HMO, PPO) plans. If pre-authorization is required prior to your visit or treatment, please make sure this is completed with your plan provider or primary care physician prior to your appointment. Otherwise, you will be responsible for the entire cost of your visit or procedure.


As a participating provider with Florida Medicaid, eligibility and authorization must be documented in order for us to file your claims prior to any office visit or treatment.

Financial Policy

Our policy is to collect fees at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made. For your convenience, we accept most major credit cards.

If you have any questions about your account or need to make special payment arrangements, please contact our Patient Accounting Staff at (727) 450-4661.
