At Stand & Deliver, we do our best to be transparent in our policies. Our general financial polices are as follows.
Your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. Stand & Deliver is not responsible for your policy or the financial implications of that policy. The most important thing is for you to know and understand your policy.
Our medical biller will help you understand the basics of your policy through the verification of benefits, but it is up to you to get curious, ask questions, and fully understand your policy.
The medical biller is responsible for submitting all claims to your insurance and following up to ensure that you get the best reimbursement possible. Each client (except for Medicaid, Tricare, some of the cost sharing plans and no insurance), will need to register with the medical biller to verify insurance benefits. The verification of benefits cost is $20.
