FEES & POLICIES
All services are provided at our standard hourly rate except for Independent Medical Examinations (IME’s) which have a fixed fee, separate from record review. The IME fee is for examination of the patient and one panorex x-ray. An estimate for record review will be provided upon receipt of ALL records and an appropriate retainer determined based on the volume of records and anticipated time required for review of same. The final fee will be based on the total time devoted to the case in addition to the IME fee, if applicable. Either of us can be chosen to review a case and should be chosen based on the nature of the case and the specific expertise required. All surgical cases will be reviewed by Dr. Traub. Lastly, all payments will be made to the doctor that reviews your case, not jointly.
There is a nonrefundable fee of $2,000 to include the first two hours of records review with telephonic or in person discussion of the findings. Further record review, preparation or reports, teleconferences or in-person discussions, deposition & trial preparation, and actual deposition trial or testimony are billed at $1,000 per hour. The fee for an Independent Medical Examination (IME) is $1,090 + applicable taxes.
A prepaid non-refundable fee is required to reserve a date for a deposition, trial, or out of town service.
This is a recapture for the office time during which patients could not be scheduled due to the anticipated legal commitment. The prepaid fee will not be applied towards a rescheduled trial or deposition. The same policy applies to Independent Medical Examinations. This fee must be received no later than ten (10) business days in advance of the date of service. If the anticipated or actual services exceed a four (4) hour time commitment then additional hourly charges will be incurred. All travel expenses must be reimbursed in full.
Payment for non-repaid services will be due within twenty-one (21) days of the invoice date. Doctors Traub & Lang will submit invoices for pre-paid services and you will be separately invoiced for services that exceed the pre-paid amount, if any. Payment for this excess amount will be due within twenty-one (21) days of the invoice date. Payments cannot be deferred or delayed for any reasons, such as future settlement, insurance matters, patient responsibility or other causes.
