Patient and Visitor Information

At Family Medicine Clinics we want to make scheduling an appointment with one of our physicians as easy as possible. Please call ahead to make appointments for all family members you wish to have seen by a physician. When making your appointment, please let the scheduler know the purpose of your visit so that an appropriate amount of time may be allowed. All follow-up appointments should be made by you (the patient) at the time you check out of the clinic.

Registration

Patients need to check in at the front desk. They will receive a form with insurance and demographic information they need to verify, making changes if necessary. On your first appointment to Family Medicine Clinics, you will be asked for basic information to establish your patient account.

A patient flow coordinator takes patients to their physician's pod, collects the verified form and insurance card(s). Following the appointment, the patient also checks out in their physicians pod.

Appointments

Since our physicians cover the Floyd Valley Hospital emergency room during office hours, there may be interruptions in the schedule. We realize that your time is valuable. If your time is limited, please call our office before your appointment to inquire if your physician is on schedule.

We would appreciate a twenty-four hour advance notice for all appointment cancellations. There will be a charge after the third missed appointment if notice is not given to our office.

Insurance

As a convenience to our patients, Family Medicine Clinics will file to both your primary and secondary Insurance Carriers. Any remaining balance after a response from your insurance will be your responsibility.

Policy coverage varies from one insurance plan to another, as do the "usual, customary and reasonable" fees that various insurance plans have established. Our fees are accepted by most plans, but occasionally one of our patients is notified that the amount for our service exceeds "UCR FEES". If we do not have a contract with your insurance company, you are responsible for any amount in excess of the "UCR FEES". Please check with your insurance agent to see if we are a participating provider with them to avoid any confusion.

If you have Insurance questions, please call Lisa at 712-546-3602.
