Financial planning

The Surgery Center fee covers the use of the facility only. It does not include fees for the following:

Laboratory
Pathology
Surgeon
Anesthesiologist

You will be billed separately for these above-listed services.

As a courtesy, we will bill your primary and secondary insurance carriers or government agency directly for the Surgery Center’s charges. Be sure to bring your most current insurance, Medicare, or public assistance card with you on the day of your surgery. If you have more than one insurance carrier, we will also need accurate secondary billing information.

Please be aware of any admission policies your insurance plan may have. You or your physician may have to adhere to certain requirements in order to insure maximum reimbursement. Failure to obtain pre-authorization, physician referral or a second opinion may greatly reduce or eliminate your benefits.

Patients who do not have insurance coverage or those having cosmetic surgery are required to pay their charges in advance. We realize, however, that at times you may require special financial arrangements. In these instances, please phone our office prior to your surgery to discuss alternative methods of payment.

The Surgery Center accepts:

  • cash
  • cashier’s checks
  • credit cards
  • personal checks with a valid ID

Please feel free to contact our business office at any time if you have questions or concerns regarding the facility charges, the financial policy or billing procedures.
