Insurance FAQ

Bodhizone accepts cash, check, Mastercard, Visa, and debit cards for copays, deductibles and patient balances as well as payment for all cash-based programs and services not covered by insurance. Although our patients are responsible for their bill, most use one or more of the options below to make sure they get access to the treatment they need.

Most insurance plans or Medicare will cover a portion or all of your treatments. We verify and authorize all patients’ insurance before their first visit, and provide a verbal review of their coverage for therapy, copays and deductibles.

We will provide you with a detailed report verifying responsibility for payment after confirming your coverage benefits. Your co-payment, if any, must be paid at each visit throughout the course of your treatment. If a deductible is part of your policy, then you will be billed any part of your treatment that was applied to your deductible.

Many people forget that they have a deductible and co-insurance. Whether you choose to go in or out of network, you are responsible for additional costs such as your deductible, co-insurance or out-of-pocket maximum.

The deductible is the amount of money you are required to pay before the insurance company starts to pay. This amount is subtracted from their initial reimbursements.

Co-insurance is the percentage the insurance company expects you to pay additionally towards your care.

All insurance plans are different. You will have a set amount per year, ranging from just a few to unlimited. Ask the front desk if you are unsure how many you have left.

Some insurance plans will mail payments to you. They will alert us that a payment was made and for how much. Just bring in those checks as they come.
