Billing and Financial Policies

All office services and/or copayments are paid at the time of the visit to your MNI physician. Please let us know immediately if you have a financial question or problem, as we do not wish to cause undue hardship for any of our patients.


Nearly all insurance plans have patient cost-sharing requirements called “deductibles” and “co-payments.”  In addition, there may be limitations and exclusions to coverage. Please contact your health plan if you are unsure about what is covered or not covered by your insurance plan.


As a courtesy to our patients, MNI will bill the insurance company for you and accept assignment for the reimbursement. (“Assignment” means the patient requests that the insurance payment be made directly to the physician or neurosurgeon.) Please note that this is not payment in full to MNI; the patient is responsible for paying the designated balance.


We accept cash, credit cards (American Express, Discover, Master Charge and Visa) and money orders for all payment types. All self-pay patients (those with no medical insurance) are required to pay at the time of the visit.


If a default in payment occurs, the entire balance becomes due immediately and may be referred to a contract collection agency. Furthermore, the responsible party may be liable for attorney fees, court costs and/or other expenses necessary to enforce collection of this debt.
