To expedite the payment process, please complete and sign all appropriate insurance forms prior to your arrival. Insurance forms are available through your insurance provider or through your employer's health program. In most cases, we should be able to estimate the cost of your surgery beforehand, and our staff will help you finalize your financial arrangements prior to surgery.
Billing for our center and your physician are separate charges. The bill from our Center includes the cost of the operating room, recovery room, certain laboratory tests, and supplies for surgery. Your surgeon, anesthesiologist and pathologist (if applicable) will bill you separately for their services.
We accept most insurance plans, including Medicare. We also accept as payment: cash, check , MasterCard, VISA, Discover, or American Express. Satisfying the conditions of your insurance policy is your responsibility, therefore, you should verify that your insurance plan covers "freestanding ambulatory" facilities and that any specific documents such as second surgical opinions or letters of certification are obtained. Our Center cannot be held responsible if a claim is denied for not meeting specific requirements. Patients who do not have full insurance coverage are required to make a prepayment before their surgery. Certain surgical procedures, such as plastic or dental surgery, may not be covered by insurance. In these instances, full payment is expected on or before the day of surgery by cash, check, MasterCard, VISA, Discover or American Express. If you have any questions about your insurance or a payment plan, please call our Center.
