Insurance & Payments

Dr. Jenkins accepts many common insurance plans, however if your insurance is from a state other than Ohio and/or is an HMO plan, it is recommended you call your insurance company to verify whether are not we are part of their network.

Several plans were “closed” to any new physicians joining, so unfortunately there are several plans that we do NOT accept at this time. If we do not accept your insurance, many times we are still able to see you as an OUT-OF-NETWORK provider, which would likely include either a higher co-pay or higher portion of the bill that is your responsibility. Unfortunately, Medicaid patients are typically not allowed to see out-of-network providers due to federal insurance laws. 

Co-pays and any outstanding balances will be collected at the time of check-in. We will bill your insurance company for you, then after your insurance company pays its portion of the bill, you will receive a statement for any remaining balance.

Starting on April 1, 2019, we will begin storing credit cards on file (securely encrypted and not visible to our staff). As a convenience for both of us, we will automatically charge your card 2 weeks after you receive your statement. If you would prefer to pay with a different card, pay by check, or set up a flexible payment plan, please let us know when you receive your statement. You will not receive your statement until AFTER your insurance has paid its portion of the bill.
