Family Medical Center maintains a list of health care plans with which we have contracted to provide services to our patients. We have agreed to bill those insurance carriers for all services rendered. This, however, does not always guarantee payment. Therefore, if the insurance company does not pay, payment for services becomes the responsibility of the patient. We require that you assign all insurance company payments directly to our office in order for us to file your claims for you. If an insurance problem occurs, you will be responsible for calling your insurance carrier to resolve any outstanding claims issue.
Most prescriptions are sent electronically to your pharmacy at the time of your visit. If you have a co-pay for your medication, that will be assessed at the pharmacy at the time when you are picking up your prescription.
We are unable to accept prescription refills over the phone. Please plan ahead by calling your pharmacy to request a refill BEFORE you run out of medication. Your pharmacy will then send us a request with your medication name and dosage. Your provider will then review the request, and a response will be sent back to the pharmacy. It may take 24 to 48 hours for your prescription to be ready. The phone number for your pharmacy is located on the medication container label.
