Policy, Payment and Fees

We accept a variety of insurance plans. However the patient is asked to pay his/her insurance plan's deductible and co-payment at the time services are rendered. Personal checks are accepted.


Emergencies

Dr. Chappidi is on staff at Community First Medical Center, Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, Resurrection Medical Center, Saint Francis Hospital, and Illinois Masonic Medical Center. In case of an emergency, the patient (or a designee) should call the office and speak with the physician-on-call to arrange for service in the office or go to the closest emergency room and have the neurologist paged/informed if needed. If there is a life-threatening situation, the patient should call "911" or go directly to the Emergency Room and have a designee call the office from there.
