    Default how do i say this for our spanish speaking patients?

    each year i make our patients aware of their new medicare deductible and this year i would like to include a message to our spanish speaking patients as well,

    how do i say:

    Attention: Medicare patients
    your 2007 annual deductible is $131
    If your supplemental insurance does not cover this deductible or you do not have a supplemental insurance, please be prepared that this portion of your office services will be collected from you today

    What confuses me is the word "office services". I would translate it like:

    Atención: Pacientes de Medicare
    Sus deducciones por el año 2007 suman $131
    Si su seguro suplementario no cubre estas deducciones o si usted no posee un seguro suplementario, por favor colabore ya que estas deducciones le serán cobradas a usted en el día de hoy.

    Yep, I turned "that this portion of your office services will be collected" into "these deductions will be collected".
    I figured it doesn't really change the meaning that much. What do you think?
