Fees and Payment
The client advises the Admissions Clerk of the method of payment prior to admission of the patient. Auburn University accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover,Care Credit, personal check and cash.
After examining the patient the clinician in charge of the case will discuss treatment options, anticipated costs and prognosis of the case with the client. The client will then be given a written estimate for their bill. A minimum deposit of 1/2 of the high-end of the estimate will be required from the client. Additional payments may be required if complications arise. Also, the attending clinician retains the prerogative of requiring a larger deposit or advance payment in full for particularly complicated high risk cases.
PLEASE NOTE: Patients will not be released until payment is received in full. Auburn University does not support any payment plans.
Insured Animals: The client is responsible for contacting the insurance company when an insured animal is presented. The client will be responsible for the fees incurred and the insurance company should be instructed to reimburse the client.
