Insurance & Billing
Insurance & Billing Information
We accept most major insurance plans. A list of insurances we accept and do not accept is listed below. Please remember, it is impossible for Troy Internal Medicine to know every insurance plan. We do our best to know what plans are accepted but ultimately it is up to the patient to know their insurance.
When in doubt, please contact your insurance company and they will be able to tell you if we are a participating provider.
Fees & Payments
Payment is expected at the time of service. We will ask you for any known copays and past balances at check out. Deductibles will not be collected until we bill your insurance.
Please contact our Billing Department at 248-267-6797. If we are all busy on the phone with other patients please leave a message. We return calls daily.
How Do I Pay My Bill?
You may return our portion of your statement with either a check or credit card information. We accept Visa and Mastercard. You may also call the Billing Department at the above number to pay by phone.
If you get our voicemail you may leave your credit card information on our secure line. We require your credit card number, expiration date, 3-digit security code and the amount you want to pay.
We will make a confirmation return call to you and send you a receipt by mail if you wish.
