Jose A. Gaudier, MD, PA is a provider for Medicare and most major insurance plans. We provide insurance billing. Anything not covered by insurance will be your responsibility. We request payment at the time of your appointment for services that are not covered by insurance. All co-pays are due and collectible at the time of the appointment.
If you have any questions regarding which insurance plans we accept or any patient billing concerns, please call us at the phone number below. Questions regarding your coverage and benefits should be directed to your employer or insurance company. Length and complexity of your medical evaluation may also determine the cost level.
It is the policy of Jose A. Gaudier, M.D., P.A. to file insurance as a courtesy to our patients; however deductibles, co-payments and co-insurance are expected to be paid at the time of service. We do not accept responsibility for communications of collections from your insurance company. If we have not received payment from your insurance company within 60 days of the date of service, the responsibility for that payment will transfer to the patient and payment in full will be expected at that time.
If under any circumstances, you are required to file your own insurance, you will be provided with the required information.
Self Pay Accounts
If you do not have insurance, payment in full for all services is expected at the time the services are rendered.
Patients are informed that we may, at our discretion, refer an unpaid account to a collection agency or credit reporting agency. Any cost relating to the collection of such accounts will be added to the balance due.
If at any time your account is turned over to a collection agency for lack of payment, you will no longer be seen in this office until your account is paid in full.
It is the policy of Jose A. Gaudier, M.D., P.A to confirm appointments at least 24 hours prior to the date of the appointment.

Three missed appointments without proper notification may result in being discharged from the practice.
There will be a $25 returned check fee added on all returned checks.
