Financial Policy

Insured Patient (new and established)

Fairbanks Clinic participates in the following health plans:

  • Medicare
  • Workers Compensation of Alaska
  • Medicaid of Alaska
  • Aetna
  • Mutli-Plan (Beech Street)
  • Blue Cross/Blue Shield (Associated with Blue Card Network)
  • Tricare

Co-pay and deductible are due at time of service. Fairbanks Clinic does not bill third party liability (auto accidents). We will bill any other insurance carrier as a courtesy to our patients. Payment is due at time of service. All balances are to be cleared within sixty (60) days regardless of insurance response, as balance is ultimately patient responsibility.

Self-Pay Patients (new and established)

Payment in full toward charges incurred at time of service is required and depending on what services you receive, there could be additional monies owed.

Payment Options

Our office accepts Visa and MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We also accept checks, cash and debit cards. Payment arrangements are not an option.

Workers Compensation of Alaska

Fairbanks Clinic will file with Workers Compensation of Alaska. If Workers Compensation does not respond or the claim is not accepted by the Workers Compensation insurance, we will consider the account to be the patient’s responsibility. We do not file out-of-state or Federal Workers Compensation insurance.

Out of State Patients

Payment in full is requested at time of service. Upon request, information is provided for the patient to bill their insurance.

Minor Children

A notarized parental permission slip must be presented if someone accompanies the minor other than the parent or legal guardian.

Statements

Statements are mailed on a monthly basis. If there are any questions, the patient needs to call the business office at 907-452-1761. Full payment is expected.

Returned Checks

The charge for each returned check due to insufficient funds is $35.00.

Collection Accounts

If an account has not been paid off after 60 days from the day of service, we will initiate the collection process. A $50.00 administration fee will be added to each collection account. After ninety (90) days from the date of service, patient’s accounts will be turned over to the collection agency. If no steps are taken to clear the balance, the clinic can discharge the patient and no further appointments are made. This decision is up to the board of directors.
