Billing and Insurance
To enable Foothill Family Clinic to bill your insurance company directly, you will be asked to provide your insurance identification card at each visit. We will scan this card into our computer system at least once a year. This procedure is required for every patient, including family members. If you have double coverage, you must present both cards at the time of service and notify the staff of the primary plan. If we are not participating on your insurance plan, we expect payment in full at the time of service but will provide you with the necessary information to submit to your insurance company.
Each insurance company offers a variety of benefit packages. It is the responsibility of the patient to know and understand his/her benefits before a visit. If you have a service or procedure that is not a covered benefit, it will be your responsibility to pay for the service. Please realize even if you have insurance, you may still be responsible for payment of deductibles and co-insurance amounts.
