Is my insurance accepted?

Why am I receiving a bill?

          A co-payment is a flat fee established by your carrier that is paid upfront during the time of service. This fee is often printed on your health insurance card. A deductible is a set amount you pay for services before your health insurance begins to pay. Co-insurance is your share of the costs for the service provided with your health insurance company. Your bill will say if the amount owed is a co-pay, deductible or co-insurance. If you have any other questions regarding your bill please contact the office at (508)674-5200 or email at
