Thank you for entrusting your healthcare to the Alaska Medicare Clinic, Inc. We believe that good care for you and/or your family starts with good communication. We have created this policy to help our patients understand the responsibilities for payment for our services.
All patients must present a photo ID and all current insurance cards at the time of the first office visit. As a courtesy to you, we bill your insurance carrier(s) which constitutes an extension of credit. If we present a charge to you, it means that we have billed and received payment from your insurance carrier(s). Any remaining amount (deductible, copay or fees for services not covered by your carrier) is your responsibility. Your insurance company will provide an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) to you regarding charges, payments and your responsibility.
Payment for services is due within 21 days of receiving your bill. This includes copayments, deductibles and any charges which have remained unpaid.
If no payments or arrangements have been made on your account we will consider turning the account over to a collection agency. Collections are always a last resort.
If at any time you have questions or problems with our fees or payment process, please don’t hesitate to contact our Billing Staff at 907-433-5100.
