Please note that it is the responsibility of the patient to know what benefits and services their insurance entitles them.
Patients are advised to bring along with them a copy of their most current insurance card when visiting our office. This ensures accuracy of documentation such as group number, provider number; and provider contact is valid at the time of service. Please note that incorrect or out-of-date information will cause delays in processing your claims and may ultimately be held responsible for the full payment of the claim.
We ask that all charges (co-pays, deductibles and self-pay fees) must be made at the time of service. Payment may be made with cash, check, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa debit or credit. Your co-payment is determined from your insurance card, which you must bring with you to each visit.
Notification of Changes
We expect that you notify our office immediately of any changes to your insurance and bring your new card into the office for a copy to put into your chart. Likewise, any changes in your personal information such as change of address or telephone number should be made known as soon as possible.
Prior to getting a referral, you must first be seen at our office. If medically necessary, you will be referred to a participating specialist. We cannot issue referrals after the fact, so please obtain referrals prior to visiting the specialist. Please allow 3-5 working days to process your referrals as these take time to process.

Please call us at 517-448-8918 if you are unsure if we participate with your health insurance. There are far too many health insurance companies to list all of them here. However, we try to participate with as many as possible.
Please note that your insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company. We bill your insurance company as a courtesy to you as our patient. We encourage you to take time to understand your benefits as Jonna L. Schmidt, M.D., P.C. cannot guarantee payment of your claim. We will render the patient responsible for any uncovered services.
