Seneca Medical Associates

The Seneca Lakes Family Medicine Residency Program at Oconee Medical Center was created to populate rural upstate South Carolina with compassionate physicians trained in the full spectrum of family medicine, providing unrivaled access to quality health care in our rural communities.

We are currently the only rural track program in South Carolina. Areas of special emphasis include surgical obstetrics, practice management and sports medicine.

The residency, which opened in July 2001, is a joint venture between Oconee Medical Center and Anderson Area Medical Center. Our residency focuses on training physicians for a rural practice.

We welcome you to come and visit us. We think you will like what you see and want to stay.

Collection Of Patient Amounts Due

Insurance companies require that we collect any co-pay or co-insurance amounts at the time of service. We will collect the co-pay amounts at the time of check-in to avoid a wait at checkout. All co-insurance amounts will be collected at the time of check-out. Please understand that you will be responsible for any amounts not paid by your insurance company.

We understand that temporary financial problems may effect timely payment of your balance. We encourage you to communicate any such problems so that we may assist you in the management of your account.

We understand that there may be special agreements between parents regarding a child’s medical expenses. However, the parent that brings the child in for a visit is responsible for making payment on that date of service.

Prescription Refill Requests By Phone

We will generally need to see an existing patient back in the office prior to calling in a prescription. However, in rare cases where it’s appropriate to write the prescription, there will be a $15.00 charge in order to cover operating costs. This is not generally covered by your insurance.

Dismissal Of Patients For Financial Reasons

Patients can be dismissed from the practice for a number of reasons, including the following financial situations:

  • Collection Agency Turnover will result in a dismissal from the practice if a patient fails to pay his or her balance within thirty days of turnover.
  • Expedited dismissal occurs when a patient is not honoring his or her financial responsibilities.
  • All patients should be given at least thirty days notice before being dismissed from practice unless instructed otherwise by physician.
