At Authority Health medical centers, we ask that you come to appointments with proper paperwork, including test results from other medical centers. It also helps if you are prepared to answer medical questions about existing conditions. When visiting an Authority Health medical center, please bring a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance (if applicable), prescriptions, and any questions you want to ask your health care provider. If your appointment is a follow-up appointment, it is helpful to bring prior test result records.
If you are a new patient, please arrive 30 minutes before your appointment to fill out paperwork. If you are a returning Authority Health patient, please arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled time.

What insurances does Authority Health accept?
Authority Health accepts most insurances and offers enrollment assistance for individuals without insurance. The insurances that Authority Health accepts can be found here.
What is my copay?
Your copayment (copay) is a flat fee that you pay for health care services, in addition to what your insurance covers. You can usually find the amount of your copay listed on your insurance card. You can also contact your insurance company to inquire about the amount of your copay. For example, some HMOs require a $10 copay for each office visit, regardless of the type or level of services provided during the visit.
What is my deductible?
Your deductible is determined by your insurance plan. It is a specified amount of money that you must pay before your insurance company will pay your claim. For example, some traditional insurance plans require you to have met a deductible before your services are paid. That deductible may be $500 for a single person and $1000 for a family. Any service can be applied against your deductible so that you can meet it.
I have Medicare; do I have a copay?
Medicare covers 80 percent of your visit, and you are responsible for 20 percent. The 20 percent of the visit you are responsible for is called coinsurance. A coinsurance is a type of insurance in which you pay a share of the payment made against the claim. If you have a secondary insurance, it usually covers the 20 percent you are responsible for.
Who do I contact about my bills?
Contact the billing department to assist with any billing-related questions. They can help you understand your statement. They can be reached at 877-520-9033
Does Authority Health offer payment plans for large balances?
