Rio Family Medicine participates with and accepts assignment of insurance benefits of most insurance organizations and we will file claims as a courtesy to you. If your insurance company denies payment, you will be billed for those services and payment in full is due upon request. If a patient does not provide an insurance card at the time of service, they will be considered “self-pay” until a card is provided.

If you have no insurance, you will be responsible for payment in full at the time of service unless prior arrangements have been made.


Co-payments are due at the time of check-in. Rio Family Medicine will accept cash, check, money -order, Visa or MasterCard. Of course, you are still responsible for the timely payment of deductibles, co-insurance, and/or non-covered services.

Referral Policy

We require at least 2 business days for completion of referrals.


Payment at the time of service for minor children is the responsibility of the person bringing the child to the visit, and parent/guardian. Please make arrangements to bring payment with you at the time of the appointment.
