Emergency situations are given immediate attention. We provide 24-hour physician coverage for emergencies. After regular office hours, call the office number and you will be given instructions on what to do. The on-call doctor will return your call if requested. In extreme or life-threatening emergencies, please call 911. When you arrive at the hospital, identify yourself as our patient.
We will notify you of all abnormal lab and x-ray results. If you have an appointment scheduled shortly after your test, we will go over the results with you during your office visit. We may also contact you by phone or mail. If you have not heard from us within two weeks of your test, please feel free to call our office.
Our practice requires payment at the time services are rendered. We will direct bill to Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Medicare, Medicaid, MVP, and Cigna. We may bill other insurance companies as a courtesy to our patients; however, payment is ultimately your responsibility. We do offer a Financial Assistance Plan for those who qualify. Co-pays are due at time of service.

Internal Medicine - Barre wants to make the process for refilling prescriptions as easy and efficient as possible. We want you to get the prescriptions you need with as few phone calls as possible.
Here are suggestions that we think will help us reach this goal:
Call Your Pharmacy First
Even if your bottle says no refills, call your pharmacy first. We work with them daily to make sure that you have the medications you need when you need them.
To prevent patients from running out of their medications, most pharmacies fax a refill request to us when your prescriptions need to be refilled. This happens behind the scenes automatically in some pharmacies. Therefore your new prescriptions may be at the pharmacy already.
If you call the prescription line at Internal Medicine - Barre: 371- 4647
You must leave your name, date of birth, medication name, dose and frequency, and a phone number to reach you so we can insure the correct medication is processed for the correct patient.
Please Allow 24 Hours to Process Refills
We receive many requests daily so we must have two business days to process prescription refill requests.
Call your pharmacy and let them know if you are out of medication and ask them to request a refill.
Sometimes We Cannot Refill Your Medication
- You may be overdue for an appointment. Our policy is that anyone taking medications must be seen once a year at least (more if recommended by your provider).
- Your insurance may require a Prior Authorization, which takes a minimum of 2 business days.
- It may be too soon for a refill. If it is not time to get a refill, your insurance company may not cover the cost.
Picking up written prescriptions
PLEASE notify us if a friend or relative is picking up your written prescription.
That person may need to know your date of birth and have an ID.
As our valued patients, we welcome your suggestions and/or
comments about how the process works for you. Thank you.
