How are financial arrangements handled?
Please contact the Center prior to surgery for pre-admission instructions and financial arrangements. You, your surgeon and/or your insurance company may request, in advance, an estimate or pre-authorization for your surgery. Our staff will help you finalize your financial arrangements before your surgery.
The fee for the use of the Center includes routine equipment and supplies, pre-operative services, routine drugs administered while in the Center, procedure room time and recovery room services. The fee DOES NOT include the cost for the professional services of your surgeon, radiologist, a pathologist, physician consultants, extraordinary supplies or anesthesiologist.
Most outpatient surgical procedures are covered by standard medical insurance. Patients will be asked for a partial payment upon admission to the Center, subject to the amount of insurance coverage. Full payment is required at the time of admittance for non-covered procedures and for patients who do not have medical insurance. However, the Center recognizes its obligation to remain flexible in financial matters. We require all payment arrangements be made prior to surgery.
