    Default FAA Physicals

    My office does FAA Physicals also. We make them total patient responsibility and they have to be paid for at the time that services are rendered.

    Default faa physicals

    I am having an issue with a patient who didn't want to pay for a DOT physical up front. We told her that we do not bill insurance for these. She has Blue Cross. We just received a call from Blue Cross rep that said that since we are contracted with Blue Cross, we have to bill for the service whether it is covered or not. The issue isn't whether it is a covered service, we reduce the charge and payment is due up front and we do not bill insurance. That is just our policy. Am I wrong?
