As a courtesy, claims may be filed directly to your insurance plan. Our staff is knowledgeable about current plan participation, but as a patient, you should also contact your insurance company to verify that our surgeons are covered providers. While our billing department can assist you with insurance issues, you, as the patient, are ultimately responsible for your bill in the event of non-payment from an insurance company. For more information about plans we participate with, please visit insurance information tab.
Patients’ requests for prescription refills are handled in 24 to 48 hours: requests for prescription refills received prior to 3:00 p.m. are addressed the same day; prescription refills received after 3:00 p.m. are addressed the following business day. For refills, please call our refill prescription line at (478) 745-4206, extension 3.
The Georgia Regional Academic Community Health Information Exchange (GRAChIE) is a big name with a big goal.
GRAChIE is a network that connects practitioners and healthcare settings across Georgia, all of whom have made the decision to participate for one reason – to improve patient care.
Across the country, networks like GRAChIE, known as Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), are being formed. Currently, GRAChIE links providers across Georgia from various care settings, including pediatrics, primary care, long-term care, home health and hospitals.
The purpose is to ensure that you and your family receive the best healthcare possible. GRAChIE will allow doctors, nurses and other healthcare providers to share vital information securely and electronically, reducing the need for patients to relay their medical information to every health professional involved with their care.
For additional information or to opt-out visit their website GRAChIE.org.
