Surprise Bill for Health Care Services
What You Need to Know To Protect Yourself From Surprise BillsWhen You Receive Services From A Non-Participating Doctor At A Participating Hospital Or Ambulatory Surgical Center, the Bill You Receive For Those Services Will Be A Surprise Bill If:
- A participating doctor was not available; or
- A non-participating doctor provided services without your knowledge; or
- Unforeseen medical circumstances arose at the time the health care services were provided.
It will not be a surprise bill if you chose to receive services from a non-participating doctor instead of from an available participating doctor.
For the safety and well-being of our patients, we have have established the following guidelines for dispensing medications:
- Please bring all your prescription and over-the-counter medications with you at each each visit. You may bring in the latest list of medications if you have one.
- Hillside Polymedic does not offer chronic pain management and will not dispense chronic pain medication(for example, chronic daily narcotics). We will provide you with a referral to a pain management center if you need this specialized form of care after evaluation by our physicians.
- If you are on medication that require refills for a chronic disease(for example, high blood pressure or diabetes), you will be given ample refills for 30 or 90 days at a time during your office visit.
- When you are down to a 30-day supply of medication, we ask that you call and schedule your follow-up office visit in order to be evaluated and have your medications adjusted or refilled. We ask that you allow enough time for us to make an appointment so you are not without your medication
- Request for new medications (including antibiotics) will not be taken over the phone or over the patient portal without an appointment and evaluation by our physician.
- We understand that unexpected situations arise, thus a small refill of a chronic medication will be granted for one or two days after office hours on an as-needed basis determined by the on-call physician. This allow patients to be seen and evaluated by the physician during office hours for all their medication refills.
