WIMC Endoscopy Procedure Payment Policy

Payment is due at time of service.

Wake Internal Medicine Consultants, Inc. (WIMC) requires patients with Medicare and non-contracted insurance plans to pay the estimated cost of the procedure in full one week prior to services being rendered. This is an estimated cost only and is subject to change in response to the physician’s findings and subsequent treatment. Our office will submit a claim to your insurance company on your behalf.

If you have insurance that has a deductible, coinsurance, or co-pay, you will be expected to pay that amount prior to services being rendered.

Some insurance companies require prior plan approval for these procedures.

It is your responsibility to check with your insurance company to see if they require it. (See list of participating plans.) If they do, please call our office at 919-781-7500, ext. 281 with all pertinent information and our staff will obtain the necessary authorization.

Screening Procedures

Some insurance companies may not cover screening procedures. If your doctor has requested a procedure because you have reached the age when these procedures are recommended, your insurance company considers this a screening procedure. It is again your responsibility to check with your insurance company to find out the coverage limitations. For some outpatient procedures, companies may cover at a different percentage or co-pay than they would for an office visit

We thank you for your patience and cooperation through the billing process and greatly appreciate you choosing WIMC for your medical care. If you have any questions regarding your fees, please call one of our patient accounts representatives at 919-781-7500.
