Payment and Billing Information

 

Payment for all services is due at the time services are rendered. However, if you unable to pay your bill at that time, we will work with you to set up a payment plan. If you choose to self-pay (not use insurance), and pay for services up front, you will receive a 40% discount.

 

Athens Heart Center and Specialty Clinics (AHC&SPC) abides by the standards set forth in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) documentation and billing requirements, and evaluation and management services:
