Your Appointment at 9th Street Internal Medicine
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time. We must register you and record any changes in your health insurance, prescription drug coverage, and contact information. If you cannot come to a scheduled appointment, please inform us at least 24 hours in advance so we can offer this time to another patient. We will charge a no-show cancellation fee if you fail to cancel and do not show up for a scheduled appointment.
Next Day Appointments
If you have an urgent problem, call us at (215) 440-8681. We can see you for both same day and next day appointments.
Lab and Testing Results
We will inform you of all lab and other test results that your NSIM provider orders within 7-10 days. You will be informed about both normal and abnormal results.
DO NOT ASSUME THAT EVERYTHING IS NORMAL IF YOU DO NOT HEAR FROM US.
Despite the best efforts of everyone involved, sometimes we do not receive reports on testing that we have ordered. No news means we have not received results. If you have not heard about your test results after 10-14 days, call our office with the name of the test and the telephone number and facility name where it was performed so that we can retrieve the results.
Billing and Insurance
All office visit copays are required at time of service. We accept cash, checks and most major credit cards. We participate with most insurance plans. We are not currently accepting new patients with Medical Assistance Plans. It is your responsibility to understand whether your insurance has limits on the doctors you can see, or the services you can receive.
If you provide complete and accurate information about your insurance, we will submit claims to your insurance carrier and receive payments directly from them for services. Depending on your insurance coverage, you may be responsible for co-payments, co-insurance, other deductible amounts, or payments for services not covered under your plan. You will be notified in advance if services provided may not be covered.
