Billing

You are responsible for any copayments or deductibles at the time of service, if you are covered by insurance or Medicare.

We file insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients. You will receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) from your insurance provider that explains what services were covered and what was paid on them. We will send you an invoice that shows what your insurance company paid, any copayments made and any balance due.

If you are uninsured, the entire payment is due at the time of service via cash, check, or credit card.

If you have questions about payment options, billing, insurance coverage or related topics, please contact our billing office at: (803) 424-2209

Make the Most of Your Appointment

Your health and your time are both important to us at South Carolina ENT, Allergy and Sleep Medicine. In order for us to best serve you, please take note of these instructions:

  • Arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment to allow ample time to complete or update your insurance information, form(s) of payment, medical history, and other pertinent paperwork. 
  • Bring your insurance card and a form of identification. Although we keep a copy of both in our files, we do require that you show your current insurance card and ID at each visit.
  • Please be prepared to pay any co-payments required by your insurance company.
  • Provide a list of medications you are currently taking, whether they are prescription, over-the-counter medications, and/or herbal remedies. Please include the dosage and medication schedule for any prescription drugs.
  • Feel free to bring a written list of symptoms you are experiencing or any questions you may have for the ENT physician who will be meeting with you. We will gladly answer your questions.
  • If you have had a CT scan, MRI, sleep study or other tests done as a result of your current medical symptoms, please provide a copy of the test results and films to one of our staff members at the time of your visit.
  • Should surgery be required, we will obtain the necessary pre-certification. Your insurance company may require a deductible or co-pay.

We look forward to making your visit a beneficial and pleasant experience!
