Billing & Insurance
If you have a question about your statement, please call the office between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm and ask for our billing department. We will make every effort to explain your bill to you and assist you in understanding insurance plan coverage. In some cases, we may ask you to contact your insurance company if there is a problem with payment. We can also answer your billing questions by calling us at 734-712-4500 All email questions will be answered within 1 business day by a return email to the address you have sent to us unless otherwise notified within your original email message.
We are participants in many insurance companies and have provided a list of some of the more common plans that we see in the office. If you do not see your insurance on our list, please call the office and ask us if we accept that plan or contact your member services representative at your insurance company and ask if we are on the provider list. We will assist you by filing your claims for you with your insurance company. If you are required to pay an office co-pay, deductible or a percentage of the office fees, we ask that you do so when you are in the office for your appointment. We accept cash, checks, Mastercard and Visa.
