Financial Responsibility

Total Primary Care is non-insurance and non-Medicare based, therefore it is the responsibility of the individual participant to pay the yearly membership fee for the program.  Fees are paid on a quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis by either check or credit card.  For those with traditional insurance, we will provide one coded insurance claim form (after your physical) so that some reimbursement might be possible from your insurer.

Please remember that tests done outside of our office are NOT COVERED by this agreement and will be billed directly by the facility performing the service.  Advanced lab testing (not considered routine) will be billed to traditional insurance.

YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO CARRY INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR NON-COVERED SERVICES.

Enrollment

Membership enrollment begins the date your signed contract is received and will be renewed annually on that date.

Memberships will be accepted until we have reached the number of enrollees that Dr. Ponnuru feels he can manage while providing the best comprehensive and personalized services.

Termination

A participant may terminate their membership at any time with a 30 day written notice.  Upon termination, fees paid will not be refunded after the annual physical has been completed or if hospital care was provided.  THE PATIENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE BALANCE OF THE YEARLY FEE, IF NOT YET PAID.
