Snell Laboratory understands the tremendous burden
that can be created by healthcare expenses. We will
make every attempt to try to ease that burden. We ask
that our patients understand the complex and costly
process that is involved in fabricating customized prosthetic
and orthotic devices. We will be happy to assist you
in working out a payment plan, helping to file insurance,
or discussing possible alternative avenues of funding.
However, we cannot begin fabrication of a device until
insurance verification is completed or other financial
arrangements are made.
Patients covered by a private insurance company are
asked to pay their co-payment and the deductible in
advance. Patients with two insurance companies are not
required to make a down payment; however, the deductible
amount may be required.
Medicare and Medicaid
It is our policy, in the majority of cases, to accept
direct Medicare and Medicaid assignments. In those cases
in which we cannot accept assignment, we would ask to
have 1/2 paid in advance and 1/2 upon delivery of the
finished device. If special arrangements are needed,
we will attempt to work out a plan for you before work
is begun on the prosthesis or orthosis.
Worker's Compensation and Veterans Health Administration
Payment is not required for verifiable worker's compensation
recipients. Veterans must present a C-card or appropriate
authorization from the Veterans Health Administration.
