Insurance Information

Participating Insurances

Our providers are in network with most health care plans in our area, including:

If we participate with your insurance plan, we will submit the claims directly to your insurance company.  However, you are responsible for:

  • Co-payments on the date of service
  • Co-insurances
  • Deductibles

If we do not participate with your insurance plan or if you do not have insurance coverage, full payment is requested at the time of service.

Your Insurance Responsibilities

You are responsible for managing your insurance.  If your insurance company requires a referral, you are responsible to have your primary care physician provide a referral prior to your appointment.  If you have questions regarding your insurance coverage or eligibility, please call the phone number listed on the back of your card.

After receiving care, your insurance company will mail you an explanation of benefits (EOB).  Taking a few minutes to review your EOB will greatly assist you in understanding the bills you may receive.

When your primary care physician refers you to a specialist, do not assume these services have been approved by your insurance plan.  Your physician is simply practicing good medicine and may not be aware of your insurance requirements.  Please contact us at (814) 724-1252 to ensure that we are in network with your insurance carrier prior to scheduling your appointment.

Your Co-Pays, Co-Insurances, and Deductibles

Your insurance company requires us to collect your co-pay at the time of your visit.  Your co-pay amount may be subject to change depending on your insurance plan and the procedures performed during your visit.  If your co-pay amounts are not subject to change, they often appear on the front of your insurance card.

Taking a few minutes to review the explanation of benefits (EOB) you receive in the mail from your insurance company after receiving care will assist you in knowing the amounts of co-insurances, deductibles, and co-payments you are responsible for paying.

We accept payments via:  cash, check, money order, credit card (Visa / Mastercard), and debit card.  You will be charged a $30.00 fee for checks that do not clear.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance or you may incur a no show fee.

All outstanding balances must be paid prior to your next visit or you may not be scheduled.

Workmans Compensation Claims

First time workmans’ compensation patients must bring the following:

  • Claim number
  • Date of injury
  • Medication list
  • Employer name, address, and phone number
  • Insurance name, address and phone number

Contact your human resources / personnel department to obtain insurance and employer information and your claim number.

Although your injury may be work related, we will also require your personal health insurance information to use in the event your workmans’ compensation carrier denies your claim.

Payment Plans

If you incur a balance with Orthopedic Associates of Meadville our billing department can work with you to establish a payment plan that best suits your financial situation.  We will supply you with monthly coupons to mail with your payments.  Please call (814) 724-1252 x270 to set up a payment plan.

We accept cash, personal checks, money orders, Visa and Mastercards, and debit cards.

Failure to pay your bill will result in your account being turned over to a collection agency.
