In an effort to promote health care price and quality transparency to enable consumers to make informed choices regarding health care treatment, our team can accommodate requests made for any of the following by calling the facility:
Personalized Financial Estimate
Upon a patient’s request, the ASC and health care providers can provide a more personalized estimate of charges and other information prior to the service; including patients with no insurance. Please note that the payment ranges are an estimated cost that may be incurred and your actual cost may vary based on actual services rendered.
Payments Need At Time of Surgery
If additional insurance information is needed or if you will need to make a payment at the time of your surgery, one of our business office team members will contact you prior to your procedure. Co-payments and Co-Insurance will be collected at the time of service. Depending on your deductible balance, you may owe additional fees and will receive a bill if indicated. If your account is not paid in full (unless prior plans have been made) within 90 days, you may be turned over to collections and you will be responsible for a 27% collection fee incurred on your account.
