The providers and staff at Jamison Family Medicine appreciate that you have chosen us for your family’s healthcare. In order to facilitate a positive relationship, we want to share some of our office policies and practices with you.
We are always eager to hear your feedback on how we can do a better job for you. Please feel free to speak with your healthcare provider or any staff member directly if you have suggestions or concerns.
To schedule a New Patient appointment, please call our office at (509) 319-2430 during business hours. On the day of your appointment, please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled appointment to allow time for registration. Please bring with you your completed new patient paperwork, any relevant medical records, a current photo ID, and your current insurance card.
Please present your insurance information at each visit and notify us immediately of any changes so we may properly direct claims. It is always helpful to us if you familiarize yourself with the details of your individual coverage. Some policies are quite comprehensive, while others may not cover certain services, such as well visits, IUDs, medications, or weight loss services. Some benefit packages cover only ‘sick’ care, while others cover only ‘preventive’ services.
When a refill is needed, please call your pharmacy directly. You may call our office to assist with your request or send us a message through our Patient Portal. However, please allow 24-48 hours for processing. Please note, we are unable to fill prescriptions at night or during the weekend.
Fees & Co-payments
Copayments and cash payments for regular office visits are due at the time of service. Our office will automatically bill you for all deductibles and fees not covered by your health plan. For elective (not covered by insurance) surgeries and in-office procedures, such as IUDs, vasectomies, and circumcisions, payment is due at the time of service. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and debit cards. We are also affiliated with Care Credit. A $25.00 fee is applied to all returned checks.
