Your insurance company, including Worker's Compensation, auto (no fault) and personal injury, is legally responsible to you.  Our relationship is with you, our patient, not your insurance company.  Consequently, all charges incurred are your responsibility.  The obligation to assure payment in a timely manner lies with you regardless of what your insurance company chooses to do.  You should normally receive a response from your insurance company within 30 days of your date of service.  If you experience a delay, it is expected that you contact your insurance company to check the status of your claim and to expedite payment.  Please call our Business Office at 908-769-1084 if you encounter a problem with your insurance company and need our assistance.

Surgicare Of Central Jersey's policy is to turn over to an attorney or collection agency all accounts which are delinquent.  You will be responsible for any collection fees that are incurred.
