Professional services in radiation oncology are provided by Clinical Radiologists, PC and technical services are provided by Covenant Medical Center. Your insurance may cover each of these services differently. All insurance policies state that it is ultimately the patient's responsibility to know what providers are covered, and what services are covered. Some insurance (including some Medicaid) does require preauthorization BEFORE you can be seen or be treated. If your policy requires preauthorization or precertification, please let the front office staff know when you check in.

NONPARTICIPATING INSURANCE PLANS
If we do not participate with your current insurance, we will bill your carrier weekly during your treatments. You may need preauthorization before we can treat you. You may bring in or send a SIGNED claim form for your insurance and we will be happy to complete it for you. If you assign the insurance benefits to us, we will give you credit for the amount covered by insurance, but will expect you to pay the difference. We will do all that we can to see that your insurance pays all that you are entitled to, but insurance does not always cover all of the costs of your treatment.
NO INSURANCE or SELF-PAY
If you do not have insurance, please contact our business office at 319-233-3044 as soon as possible so that we can work with you regarding the financial aspects of your treatment.
