When you receive a bill from Goad Clinic your insurance company has already been billed and has paid whatever portion they are obligated to pay. You will likely, if you haven't already, received an explanation of benefits (EOB) from the insurance company explaining what you paid and what you might be billed for. We encourage all patients to ask questions about the charges for their care.
Once you receive your bill if you have any questions or would like to set up a payment plan contact the clinic business office as soon as possible (785-346-2121). The clinic has a generous financial assistance policy for those who qualify.
The other side of our willingness to make paying your bill as easy as possible is an aggressive collection policy. The clinic uses collection agencies, small claims court, collections through the State of Kansas set-back program, and/or other legal action as required.
Our policy states that regular monthly payments are required to avoid collection action. We prefer to set up a payment schedule with you rather than forward your account to collection. Please call 785-346-2121 at your earliest convenience to get a schedule worked out.
