Payment is expected at the time of service. We do not accept, participate in or file insurance. We will provide you with an itemized invoice for your records. Laboratory and diagnostic testing may be covered by your insurance depending upon your policy. “Care credit” financing is available.
We have a strict 24 hour cancellation policy. Failure to cancel an appointment without at least 24 hour notice will result in a charge of 50% that of the missed appointment. Future appointments will require a credit card number prior to scheduling.
Medicare beneficiaries may only be seen by our Nurse Practitioners for visits or services otherwise covered by Medicare. As required by law, our Nurse Practitioners have “opted-out” of Medicare insurance billing.
Due to government regulations we are NOT able to provide services to medicaid beneficiaries for any service that would normally be covered by medicaid. We are allowed to provide services that are clearly not covered by medicaid, such as low dose allergy injections or specialized IV therapies. Please contact us if you have questions about whether a specific therapy is allowed.
Prior Authorization from Insurance
We are glad to assist with “prior authorizations” for medications, referrals or diagnostic testing. Our fee is tabulated at $60/hour and there is no guarantee of coverage.

Dr Rollins and staff are happy to facilitate your care via email or phone consultations. For routine quick correspondence there is no charge. For phone calls or emails that take more than 5 minutes or facilitate a new diagnoses and treatment, we charge the usual rate for time as noted in the “provider fee schedule” table below.
Included in all initial visits with our providers is a FREE 30 minute Nutrition Consult with our Nutrition and Wellness Consultant, Meredith Newell. She is a wealth of information about nutrition, various diets, food allergy elimination, and can help with meal planning and custom meal preparation.
