General information about Hunter-Hopkins Center.
You are welcome to record your visit to this office. Usually a CD recorder is available or you may bring your own.
Most patients will undergo tilt table testing to determine whether a condition called orthostatic intolerance is present. This is a simple test that requires no drugs or infusions to perform.
Your insurance coverage is a matter between you and your insurer. Please bring your insurance card with you to each office visit to help us in preparing your claim for you to file. At the time of service, or very shortly thereafter, we will provide you with a statement of services performed, as well as a standard insurance claim form (HCFA 1500). It is your responsibility to see that the claim is properly forwarded to your insurance carrier.
We do not participate in insurance or accept assignment of insurance benefits. At this time, we are not able to accept Medicare, Medicaid, or Workman’s Compensation.
If your insurer questions your claim we will assist in your response. It is our experience that approximately one-third of insurers pay most or all of our claim, one-third pay a portion of our claim, and one-third pay nothing at all.
Every patient must have a primary care physician. We are a consulting practice and are not set up to handle emergencies. For this reason we require that all of our patients have a primary care physician whom they can call in an emergency and to take care of any long distance primary care needs. Please bring the name and address of your primary care doctor. We will send a report to your doctor to better coordinate your care.
