Billing Error Disclaimer
This office is required by federal compliance laws to report services provided by South County Orthopedic Specialists based on documentation in the medical record. As a policy, we cannot improperly alter a claim for the purpose of obtaining payment. If you discover a bona fide billing error, duplicate charge or other posting errors, we welcome you to bring the matter to the attention of our business office staff for investigation and proper corrective action.
As you may know, coverage and payment amounts vary greatly by payer (i.e., insurance company). If you have questions about your particular coverage, it is best to check with the benefits representative at your company. Our staff will be happy to assist you in claims filing for prompt adjudication and payment of your insurance claim.
We do not accept lien cases or new patient personal injury cases involved in litigation. Should you have a personal injury which ultimately requires that you obtain an attorney to represent you, we will be happy to provide your attorney with copies of your medical records through a copy service. We do not provide narrative medical-legal reports, depositions or court testimony.
