Credit Policy


Lower Columbia Pathologists Policy Regarding Credit and Finance Charges

The Federal Truth in Lending Act (Regulation Z) makes it necessary for all firms extending credit to define their credit policy. The Doctor's policy is to extend credit to patients with the understanding that all charges are due and payable within thirty days following the date of billing. The Doctor will extend additional time for payment of accounts to patients who need and/or request it. The maximum credit extended without prior arrangements with our Billing Department is $100.00. If you expect to or do incur charges in excess of $100.00, and wish to extend payment of the account over a period of time, please contact our Billing Department.

Finance percentages and charges, if any, are included on the front of your statement.

You are responsible for the payment of your account within the limits of our credit policy.

The Doctor's Billing Department shall continue to assist you, in every reasonable way, to complete your insurance claim forms so you may receive reimbursement promptly. Whenever you have questions about your account, please contact our Billing Department.
