Do you provide primary care services?
It is important to note that Dr. Compart does not function as your primary care physician. Your child must have and maintain a primary care physician in order to be followed by Dr. Compart. Dr. Compart functions as a specialty physician. She is glad to work in conjunction with your primary care provider in order to coordinate and facilitate your child's care.
Do you accept insurance?
Dr. Compart does not participate with any insurance plans. Payment is expected at the time of service, regardless of whether your insurance company reimburses your visit. We do not file forms directly with insurance companies; this is your responsibility. We will provide you with invoices which include all standard information you will need to submit your claim directly to your insurance company (such as CPT codes, ICD-10 diagnoses and codes, etc.) Please be aware that some of the services provided may be "non-covered" services or not considered "reasonable and necessary" under your medical insurance.
Do you participate with Tricare?
Dr. Compart does not participate with Tricare and is not currently taking new Tricare patients.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, checks, and Visa, Master Card or Discover credit cards. Payment is due at the time of service.
What is your cancellation policy?
When a patient cancels shortly before an appointment or is a "no show," we miss the opportunity to provide care to other patients who may have been able to use that time slot. Therefore, appointments (in-office or phone appointments) must be cancelled 24 hours in advance. Cancellation needs to be done within 1 business day. For example, if your appointment is on Monday, the appointment would need to be canceled by the preceding Friday. Appointments not cancelled within this time period will be billed a $50 missed appointment fee.
We understand that medical emergencies and other unforeseen events may occur; exceptions may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
To cancel an appointment, please call the office at 667-200-5446.
Do you do phone appointments?
Phone appointments may be done for established patients (e.g., to discuss lab results, follow-up of treatment, etc). Payment must be made by credit card at the time of the appointment. The cost for the phone appointment is prorated based on Dr. Compart's hourly rate. Please note that phone appointments are generally not reimbursed by insurance.
Does Dr. Compart communicate by e-mail?
Dr. Compart does communicate by e-mail. However, e-mail is not to be used for urgent or emergent issues. E-mail communication is viewed as billable time, as is an office visit or telephone consultation. Brief e-mails may not be billed. However, frequent e-mails will be cumulative and may be billed on a monthly basis based on the time required to respond to your e-mails. Billing will be prorated based on Dr. Compart's hourly rate. Please note that e-mail correspondence is not covered by insurance.
