Fees and Insurance - Highland Family Medicine Fees To keep medical costs reasonable, we ask you to pay at the time of your visit for charges not covered by your insurance. Your prompt payment decreases administrative costs and results in lower charges overall. There is an additional $10 fee when you do not pay at the time of your visit. If you cannot pay at the time of your visit, please let our billing office know. A representative can meet with you to design an affordable payment schedule. Accounts greater than 90 days overdue may be referred to an outside agency for collection. Patients who do not pay their medical bills may be asked to leave the Practice. Financial assistance is available for qualifying individuals. We encourage patients to inquire about these programs. If you have a form for insurance, disability, or social services, please make a separate appointment to complete the form. The only way to ensure accurate and timely completion of a form is to devote an entire visit with your provider.
