We will make every effort to keep this process as simple as possible. Your surgical procedure will generate several different bills from different sources:
Our bill covers the use of the facility and all necessary supplies used during your surgical procedure.
You will receive separate bills from your surgeon and anesthesiologist.
Other billable services that may be used during your surgery are laboratory and/or pathology charges, radiology and some specialty items.
Our facility works with your doctor’s office to make sure we have accurate insurance information. We will contact your insurance carrier if there is any question about your eligibility. If it is determined that you are responsible for the bill in its entirety or just a portion, we will notify you before your date of surgery to make payment arrangements. We accept cash, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
