For your convenience, we recommend that you call in advance to schedule physical examinations and routine check-ups. Other appointments are scheduled as available and necessary. Some appointments are set aside each day for sudden illnesses, these fill quickly each morning. Please call early. If you are unable to keep a scheduled appointment, we ask that you notify our office as much in advance as possible. Early notification allows someone else to use that appointment time and you to reschedule as soon as possible. Failure to notify our office that you cannot keep your appointment time on multiple occasions, may results in a dismissal from the practice.
If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for an appointment, you may be asked to reschedule or wait until other scheduled patients have been seen. This avoids long waits for you and other patients, and provides adequate time for a thorough visit.
If you or your family need emergency care or urgent information outside of office hours, contact Harrison Memorial Hospital at 859-234-2300 and leave a message with the operator. The physician on call will return your call. Please do NOT page the physician on call for medication refills.
Co-payments or payments in full at the time of service is expected. If your Health Benefit Plan has a high deductible, we expect a payment of $40 to be applied toward your deductible at the time of service until the deductible is met. You may pay by check, credit/debit card or cash. Please make checks payable to Family Care Associates or FCA. You will be offered a receipt for each payment. Labwork and x-rays performed at Harrison Memorial Hospital, Combined Physicians Lab or other facilities will be billed to you separately. Any overpayment can be credited to your account or refunded to you.
Please notify our office staff to any change in insurance when you arrive for your appointment. If you are on Medicaid, please present your card when you arrive for each appointment.
If you do not present your insurance card when you arrive for your appointment or are not prepared to pay your co-payment, co-insurance, or the full amount of your office visit, we reserve the right to reschedule your appointment until such a time that you are prepared to do so.
Should you be unable to make payment at the time of service, a statement will be mailed to you. We expect prompt payment. Patients whose accounts are 30 days past due will be contacted so that payment arrangements can be made. We realize that special situations arise that require alternative payment plans. Please discuss these with our Billing Coordinator before your account is overdue.
When you call our office, our office staff will direct your call as needed. If you are requesting to speak to a nurse, you may be routed to the nurse voicemail and prompted to leave a message. If you are requesting a refill, you may be routed to the refill voicemail. Our message nurse will check all nurse voicemails throughout the day. For Referrals, Medical Record requests and Billing/Insurance issues, your call may be routed to the voicemail of the appropriate staff member. ALL voicemails are checked throughout the day.
Calls regarding laboratory tests or x-ray results, when performed at another facility, will be returned when the results are available. Any abnormal results will be reported to you as soon as the physician has reviewed them. A letter will be sent to you if all test results are normal. These results can be reviewed at your next appointment.
Refilling Medications/Samples: Family Care Associates requires a 48 hour notice on refilling any medications or samples. Call your pharmacy when you are low on medication to see if you have any refills remaining. Your pharmacist will send a request to our office if there are no refills remaining. Please contact our office for refills on prescriptions that must be written and allow 48 hours for the refill request to be process.
When leaving voicemails on any line, please speak clearly and say the name of the caller, the name of the patient, the date of birth of the patient. Then leave a valid call-back number and a detailed message.
If you call outside of regular office hours, you will reach a recorded message. You may leave a non-emergent message for us that will be addressed the following business day. In case of Emergency, DO NOT leave a message. Hang up and dial 911 immediately.
