We will bill all insurance companies; however, it is the patient’s responsibility to ensure his/her insurance company is considered in-network. We are happy to see patients who are out-of-network. However, the patient is then responsible for payment of all amounts not paid for by their insurance.
The following insurance companies are in-network:
- Blue Cross/Blue Shield
- Preferred One
- Select Care
- United Healthcare (card must indicate Laborcare network)
All billing questions should be directed to Lori at (952) 933-6724
We will be happy to submit your claim(s) to your insurance carrier on your behalf. Once the insurance processes your bill, you will be sent a statement for any amounts owed by you. This amount is due in full upon receipt. If you are unable to pay this in full, please call Lori in our billing department at (952) 933-6724 to set up a payment plan. Interest will accrue on any unpaid balances that are 60 days or older.
We will verify your insurance benefits and if your insurance company advises us that you have greater than $500 left to pay on your deductible, we will require:
- $300 deposit at the time of service, on a credit/debit card if desired.
- Credit/debit card put on file to be run for the patient balance owed immediately when insurance responds.
- Arrange with the business office a payment plan prior to your visit for the estimated amount due.
Copays are due at the time of visit. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
There will be a service charge applied to NSF checks.

If you fail to show for your initial appointment you will be charged $200.00; if you fail your follow-up for a return appointment, you will be charged $20.00.
We have contracts with most of the major insurance companies. However, insurance plans are constantly changing and not all products, even within a given insurance company, have the same requirements regarding whom you can see for your endocrinology care. We are happy to help with any questions you have; but, ultimately, it is the patient’s responsibility to verify with their insurance company whether or not we are in network and what your particular benefits are.
Please contact Lori in the billing department at (952) 933-6724 with any questions.
