Buffalo Grove Orthopedic Associates Helping You Achieve a Productive and Healthy Lifestyle

Fees & Insurance


In order to keep our costs low we would appreciate payment of any co-pays and deductibles at the time of the initial service.  Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted.  Our fees are sensible and responsible to the guidelines set by the insurance companies and government agencies.  Our office is fully computerized and our staff can help you to obtain the maximum benefit from your personalized healthcare.

You are responsible for the deductibles, co-pays, and the balance after insurance reimbursement and adjustments as specified by your individual plans.

We also make special accommodations for self-pay patients who do not have insurance based on a fee schedule and the nature of the patient’s problem.  Please feel free to speak with our office manager in order to establish acceptable payment arrangements for any outstanding balances in self-pay situations.


PPO/Managed Care Contracts

Billing Policy

This office is required by federal compliance laws to report services provided by the physician based on documentation in medical records, which is a reflection of the services that were provided to you while you were receiving treatment by the physician. Read More.


Fracture Care Billing Issues

Our practice makes every effort to follow the current insurance coding practices for reporting medical services as outlined by HCFA and the American Medical Association. These regulations can be quite complicated, and they often generate lots of questions from our patients. Read More.
