Billing & insurance

We are dedicated to making sure everyone has access to our care. We accept a variety of payments and offer a sliding-fee scale for those who qualify.

Frequently Asked Questions

We accept a wide variety of private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and Children’s Health Plan (CHP+) plans. We make every effort to bill insurances; but there are insurances that we do not contract with, which can result in you being responsible for full payment at the time of service. In these instances, we will collect the charge from you and then we will give you what you need to file for reimbursement from your insurance company.

Knowing your benefits is an important part of being a consumer of healthcare. Calling your insurance company before your appointment will help you know what to expect financially. The number to call can be found on your insurance card. Asking your insurance a few key questions goes a long way to making sure you know your financial obligations:

  • Is AHS “in network” with your insurance plan?
  • Is a prior authorization needed before your appointment?
  • What services are covered, and are there any exclusions you need to be aware of?
  • Does your deductible apply?
