If no insurance is applicable, charges will be due upon receipt of the statement. If you have additional questions or concerns regarding your statement, please feel free to call our billing office for prompt attention to your concerns. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff is available to answer any questions patients may have concerning our billing practices. Please have your insurance card, EOB from your insurance company, or billing statement available so our Billing Representative may assist you.
Compliance and Medical Necessity
Our Aurora Diagnostics Partner Practice adheres to applicable federal and state laws, as well as the coverage limitations of private health plans. We are committed to complying with the law, and expect all our referring physicians to abide by the law as well.
CPT and ICD coding references provided by our Aurora Diagnostics Partner Practice on your pathology report are provided only as a guidance to assist you in billing. Occasionally, an incorrect CPT or ICD code is chosen by a non-Medical Biller. Our Aurora Diagnostics Partner Practice assumes no responsibility for billing errors due to reliance on the CPT or ICD codes we provide your office. It is your responsibility to verify the accuracy of the codes provided and to assign values to each code based on the guidelines of your practice.
For further information on CPT coding, please consult the CPT Coding Manual published by the American Medical Association. For further information on ICD coding, please consult the current ICD Coding Manual published by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Professional Courtesy Testing
Federal and state regulations prohibit healthcare providers from offering “professional courtesy” testing. As a result, we are prohibited from honoring professional courtesy requests. If your patient cannot afford our services due to financial hardship, please contact our Billing Department.
