Patient Travel can be submitted any day. Anyone who calls or leaves a message with appointment details gets put into Roza’s notebook with a date stamp. Roza works on patient travel Monday, Tuesday, and Friday afternoon. She requires at least 2 days processing any patient travel claims. Any patient travel claims submitted with an invoice of service or note signed by a Doctor or Medical Office Assistant confirming attendance of appointment  will be completed swiftly. Contacting medical clinics to confirm an appointment or walk-in does take some time, so please keep in mind that Roza will assist those who called or faxed her first. Roza will need 10-14 days’ notice for any overnight stays or treatment travel claims.
