Billing and Patient Accounting
Pacific Vascular accepts all patients and bills most insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid. Patients are responsible for all co-payments and deductibles not paid by their insurance plans.
Before Your Exam:
Please bring all of your insurance card or information with you to your exam. When you arrive we will ask you to complete a registration form. We will not ask you to pay any deposit or co-pay amount at the time of your exam.

Certain medical plans require you to have a written authorization from your primary care physician. If your insurance plan requires a pre-authorization from your physician, please bring that authorization with you.
Billing Your Insurance:
Pacific Vascular is contracted with most insurance companies and accepts Medicare assignments and will bill medical insurance companies directly for the convenience of the patient.
How much your insurance plan pays for our services depends upon the plan design. You may want to contact your insurance company for coverage information before your exam. Certain medical plans require you to have a written authorization from your primary care physician.
We also bill your secondary insurance when you are covered by more than one medical plan. Once your insurance plan(s) have paid, we will bill you for any remaining balance. You may also set up a payment plan if you are unable to pay the balance in full.
For your convenience, we accept MasterCard, VISA and American Express.
If You Have Medicare Coverage:
We accept Medicare assignment. If you have Medicare coverage we will bill Medicare Part B for your services. You will be responsible for paying any unmet deductible and the Medicare co-insurance amount. Many times our patients have secondary insurance coverage that will pay some or all of the Medicare co-insurance amount. Since we accept Medicare assignment, we will “write off” any part of our charge that is above the Medicare allowable charge for your exam.
