Billing & Insurance
Our physicians are providers for most major health insurance plans.
Prior to your appointment in our office, it's a good idea to check if care by our orthopedic, rheumatology or sports medicine physician is covered by your health plan and to learn about your plan's covered services, payment terms and referral policy.
Please bring your current insurance card with you to your appointments.
Co-payments are expected to be paid at the time of your orthopedic, rheumatology or sports medicine appointment. For your convenience, our office accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover, personal checks and cash as payment for services.
Regardless of your insurance coverage, you are responsible for payment for the services performed. Our staff will be happy to submit initial claim forms to your insurance carrier. If you are unable to show proof of coverage, we expect payment for services at the time of your office visit.
For more information about the health insurance plans we accept, please speak with our office manager.
If you have questions about your bill for a visit to Drs. Bernhard, Brunicardi, Fortman, Leeson, Stadnick, Viau or Yoder, call the OhioHealth Physician Group Central Business Office at (614) 544.6366.
