What is your policy around private insurance & Medicare?

A: Our staff is pleased to bill your insurance company as a courtesy to you once your insurance coverage has been verified. Please note, verification of benefits is not a guarantee of benefits, only an estimation. Benefits are determined after your insurance company processes your claims. It is your responsibility to remit any amount not covered by insurance.

Our staff will request authorization from the patient to release any medical information necessary to process his/her claim(s). Payment of medical benefits will be assigned directly to Orthopedic & Sports Therapy of Kenner and Metairie. If a claim is denied, we will request authorization from the patient to appeal with the insurance carrier or Medicare carrier.

Q: Do you have information about workers’ compensation?

A: Our staff will authorize and/or pre-certify your workers’ compensation claim with your employer’s insurance carrier. We will file all the necessary paperwork to make sure your claims are processed correctly. We will assist in the workers’ compensation process to provide a smooth journey for you and everyone else involved.

Q: Does my lawyer need to be involved if it’s a workers’ compensation case?

A: In order for us to meet our financial obligations, Orthopedic & Sports Therapy of Kenner and Metairie requires a letter of protection from your attorney, along with a $500.00 deposit and an agreed payment plan of $300.00 per month. If you have insurance coverage for your injury, we will file your claims to your carrier on your behalf. We will ask that you sign a form allowing payment to be made directly to us. A monthly statement of charges and payments will be sent to your attorney. We will request a status update routinely from your attorney since we will need to know if your attorney is still representing you and if the case is still pending. If for some reason you change attorneys, we must be notified immediately. Should your lawsuit be dropped, payments of any unpaid balance will be your responsibility and due in full.

The patient is to authorize the attorney to pay any unpaid balance on the account for services rendered. The patient is to understand that no settlement proceeds will be disbursed without first paying the unpaid balance of charges owed to Orthopedic & Sports Therapy of Kenner and Metairie.

Q: What is your policy for private-pay patients?

A: The patient understands and agrees that he/she is responsible and liable for payment of all charges assessed for professional services rendered. The patient is primarily responsible for all charges (including late charges). If a payment plan is required, our staff will be happy to enroll you in our Easy Pay program for your convenience.
