After your visit with our office, your account is coded and, if applicable, billed to your insurance. Claims are electronically filed daily. If we bill insurance for you, each company typically resolves their portion of the claim within 50 to 60 days. If payment is not received within this time frame, we may request your assistance in resolving your claim. Filing insurance on your behalf is a courtesy and is not required on our part. After insurance has processed your claim, you will receive a bill from us only if you owe part of the account balance.

Western Kentucky Kidney Specialists offers patients the ability to set up payment arrangements when needed due to hardship. Payment arrangements will be extended no further than 6 months into the future and must be a minimum of $25.00 per month. Payment must be made in consecutive months to keep the payment arrangement in good standing. Patients will be asked to sign a Budget Agreement Form outlining the details of the agreement. Once the agreement has been returned to the Patient Services Department the account will be moved to a status of BUDGET and the patient will not have collection activity taken on their account so long as the account remains in good standing as stated above. Payment arrangements do not apply to balances in a collection status.
