New Patients

Malik Rheumatology welcomes you to our office!  To help ensure that your visit goes smoothly, we have outlined a few brief tips below.

 

First Visit

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your designated check-in time and bring the following items to your first appointment:

 

  • Any pertinent medical information / copies of medical records from Primary Care Physician (PCP) may be faxed to our office at (620) 663-8201
  • Current medication list
  • Copy of current insurance card (required for each visit)
  • Referral form if required by your health insurance carrier

 

For your convenience, we have provided the necessary paperwork below for you to bring to your first appointment.  If you are not able to bring this paperwork with you, we will simply have you fill it out in our office.  If time permits, we will mail forms to you.  Payment will also be expected at the time of service (co-pays, etc.).

 

Appointments & Scheduling

To make an appointment, please call us in advance at (620) 663-8200 or (877) 663-8206. It’s important to arrive at your check in time if you’re an established patient to secure your scheduled appointment and to allow time for registration at the front desk.  No shows and cancellations less than 24 hours will be charged a fee of $25.00.

 

Late Patients

Patients are considered late if they don't arrive by their check in time.  While we will do all that we can to help late patients, we cannot always accommodate you and may have to reschedule.

 

Prescriptions Refills

Please plan accordingly for prescription refills and call your pharmacy several days before your medication runs out. The pharmacy will send us a refill request. It may take up to three business days to process prescription refills (by Malik Rheumatology and your pharmacy) and refill requests are not accepted over the phone. If it’s been several months since your last appointment, you may be asked to make an appointment to refill your prescription. If a new prescription is required, your pharmacy will notify us and your provider will either send the prescription to the pharmacy or call you to set up an appointment.

 

Insurance/Payment Information

As a courtesy, claims will be directly submitted to your insurance carriers. Check your insurance plan for participating providers. It is your responsibility to contact your insurance company to find out if your deductible has been met for the calendar year, and what your co-pay is (percent you pay). Patients are responsible for deductibles and co-pays at the time of service.

 

Patient Accounts

All patient account balances are due within three months of service regardless as to whether your insurance company has processed the claim or not.  Financial arrangements can be made with the Office / Finance Manager.
