Clearwater Cardiovascular Consultants (CCC) firmly believe that a good physician/patient relationship is based upon clear communications. Please take a moment to review our financial policy prior to your office visit.

Our fees for professional services are consistent with those charged in other medical offices in the community. We will always be glad to discuss our fees with you.
Billing and Collection
CCC participates with numerous insurance companies. For patients that are members of these plans, we will submit an insurance claim for services rendered and send the patient periodic statements showing the balance on the account.
Payment at the time of service is expected as follows:
If you are covered by:
Medicare and do not have a secondary insurance plan: you will be requested to pay 20% of the Medicare allowable and/or your deductible (when applicable).
A Managed Care plan: you will be requested to pay your co-payment for authorized services. You will also be asked to pay all or a portion of your unmet deductible (when applicable).
Florida Medicaid or Medipass: you will be requested to pay your co-payment if applicable.
Commercial Insurance: you will be requested to pay 55% of that day’s charges and/or your deductible (when applicable).
All other patients will be asked to pay for their services in full unless prior arrangements have been made with us.
If a patient feels that he or she may require financial assistance, request to speak to a Patient Accounts representative before seeing the physician. When necessary, a monthly payment schedule can be established. Please contact our Patient Accounting Department at:(727) 445-1990.
We accept US currency (cash), checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, American Express, and money orders.Your timely payment will help us control the cost of health care.
