Insurance & Payment
University Orthopaedic Clinic & Spine Center is a preferred provider for most major health plans serving west Alabama, and we accept BCBS, Medicare, Medicaid and Workers’ Compensation. Please contact your insurance company or you may call our office at (205) 345-0192 to find out if we accept your insurance plan.
If your insurance plan requires you to pay a co-payment, co-insurance, and/or a deductible, it will be necessary to pay at the time of your visit. Payment will also be required for all non-covered services. If you are not covered by health insurance we require a $150.00 payment at the time of your visit and we will be happy to work out a payment plan with you at that time. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and American Express. If you do not have insurance, we can arrange a payment plan for you.
If your insurance is a managed care plan and you are required to obtain a referral from your primary care physician, the referral must be obtained before you can be seen for an office visit. Please coordinate this with your primary care physician in advance. Appointments will be rescheduled if required referrals are not received in the office by the time of your visit.
