Refund Policy

As part of our commitment to deliver an excellent patient experience, we strive to identify and resolve patient overpayments as quickly as possible.  Accounts in a credit balance are analyzed for possible patient overpayments.  Patient overpayments are refunded by check, HSA/FSA card, credit card, or applied to the guarantor’s other outstanding balances as appropriate.  Since refunds may take 4-6 weeks to process, customer service representatives are available to update patients on the status of a refund.
