Insurance and Billing

Insurance & Billing


Our patients are encouraged to check with their insurance carrier to make sure that Georgia Spine & Orthopedics is in their care network. Georgia Spine & Orthopedics can also provide care for patients as an out-of-network provider; details of your financial responsibility should be discussed with your insurance company.  As a courtesy, we are happy to file insurance claims for our patients. We will file a claim to our patient’s primary insurance carrier as well as any secondary or supplemental insurance plans they may have once the primary carrier has paid.

We currently do NOT accept the following: Medicaid, Ambetter, Wellcare, BCBC Pathway X, Department of Labor Workers Compensation, Cigna Local Plus, Clover Health or self-pay.

Patients can help us file these claims effectively by providing a copy of their current insurance card and all necessary billing information. We participate in the following major plans:

HMO Policy : Please note that if your insurance policy requires a referral to a specialists’ office, such as ours, it is your responsibility as guardian to obtain a referral/authorization before your appointment. If there is no valid referral or authorization on file at the time of your appointment, this will cause a wait time and may result in a reschedule.  If you are seen without a proper referral, you will be responsible for the charges not covered by your insurance policy.


Our statements are sent out on a monthly basis through our billing company. All charges are due and payable within 30 days of receipt. We accept cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, and Amex for payment on your account. You can also pay your bill online here.
