As we are all aware, health insurance has become very complicated. Dr Tabibzadeh's practice currently has contracts with many different companies with many different plans. The options and coverage vary so considerably and are so numerous that we cannot keep track of the details of all the plans. We urge you to become familiar with your insurance so that you understand its rules, coverage and limitations. All insurance companies have time limits for billing. If the information that we use for billing comes directly from your insurance company with your child's insurance card, we have more success in meeting filing limits and avoid having to transfer claims to you. It is the policy of the office to turn accounts with balances overdue for 90 days or more to a collection agency. We would prefer not to take this course of action as it may adversely affect your ability to obtain credit in the future.
