Guide to Financial Services
Before your initial appointment
Your patient services coordinator will explain the financial process in detail and answer any questions you may have.
Additional Medical Care
Financial services will prepare a detailed cost estimate for you. 100 percent of the estimated cost must be deposited before we can begin any services. Actual charges may vary from the original estimate.
Not all charges will post before you leave. If additional consultations or tests were performed, financial services may request an additional deposit.
Philadelphia International Medicine accepts:
- Wire and credit card payments through Flywire
- Traveler’s/Cashier’s/Certified checks
A 100 percent deposit is required prior to confirming your appointment. Your patient services coordinator will send you a letter outlining the estimated costs for your initial medical appointments and treatments and payment methods.
Philadelphia International Medicine works with many international health insurance companies. If you have insurance, please give your patient services coordinator a copy of the front and back of your insurance card when you request an appointment.
A financial services representative will contact your insurance company to confirm benefit eligibility and gain authorization. If PIM does not participate with your insurance plan, you may settle the claims and submit a request for reimbursement directly to your insurance company.
Philadelphia International Medicine works with embassy liaisons to ensure that we receive a letter of guarantee from the embassy prior to confirming your appointment. For more information, please contact your patient services coordinator.
