Insurance / Billing
Our goal is to make each patient visit smooth. We work with you to help you understand your insurance coverage, your responsibility as a patient and the responsibility of your insurance provider.
The University Centers of Excellence accept most major health plans. While most major insurance health plans are accepted by the University Centers of Excellence, participation in health plans are at the discretion of each individual faculty practice location. It is important that you understand your insurance coverage, your responsibility, and confirm that your insurance is accepted by the UCOE office you are visiting.
We are always here to help you with any questions that you may have. If you are uncertain if your health plan is accepted, please feel free to contact the location you will be visiting or our billing office at 559-453-5231 (English and Spanish services are available).
Patients are required to pay co-payments at the time of their visit and cash-pay patients are required to pay for services in full at the time of service. The collection of co-payments is required by health plans, and it is unlawful to waive or discount a patient’s required co-payment.
We understand that each patient is different and unique situations arise. It is important that you communicate any interruption to your insurance coverage, change to insurance plan immediately, or difficulty paying for your medical services.
As a service to our patients, we offer a wide variety of resources to help patients understand their insurance coverage and their responsibility as a patient. Patients who have an outstanding bill can conveniently pay it online through our online bill-pay option or MyChart. For patients who do not have internet access or would rather not pay electronically, payments can be mailed to our corporate office at
