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.

Other Providers

Services may be provided by the ASC as well as by other health care providers who may separately bill the patient and may or may not participate with the same health insurers or health maintenance organizations as the facility.  You will receive separate bills from Surgical Specialists, ASC, your physician, and your anesthesiologist. You may also receive a bill for any laboratory, pathology, diagnostic services, or implants that you receive.  Patients should contact each health care provider who will provide services in the ASC to determine their coverage and participation with the health care plan.
