Welcome to the Area's Most Modern Ambulatory Surgery Center
We may contact you prior to your procedure to discuss your co-payment, co-insurance or deductible. It is your responsibility to know and understand what your insurance will cover.
General Insurance Information:
Your insurance policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Our relationship is with you, not your insurance company. Therefore, all charges are ultimately your responsibility, regardless of your insurance status. You are responsible for getting proper referral and pre-authorization information prior to your surgery.
Insurance we participate with:
We will bill your insurance claim for you; however, all coinsurance and/or deductible are your responsibility. We will estimate the balances to the best of our ability. Payment of this estimate is due the day of the surgery. For your convenience we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Care Credit, Cash, and Checks.
Insurance we do not participate with:
We will bill your insurance claim for you, as a courtesy. However, payment of your estimated responsibility is due on the day of your surgery.
Cosmetic and Laser Refractive Surgery:
We require that all Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Vision Correction Surgery be paid in full on the date of service.
We require written approval/authorization by your employer and/or worker’s compensation carrier prior to your surgery. If your claim is denied, you will be responsible for payment in full.
Any account balance that is not paid within 90 days from the date you were billed by the Center may be forwarded to an outside agency for collection follow-up. Any account balance that remains unpaid after this transfer may be eligible for reporting to a credit bureau. Should litigation be necessary to collect an outstanding balance owed, the responsible party agrees to pay all costs of collections including, but not limited to, collection fees, attorney fees, interest, and court costs.
The surgery center does not sponsor payment plans. For your convenience we accept all major credit cards, Care Credit, Cash and Checks.
The Surgery center works with charity organizations that compensate us for our work. We do not provide free services.
Patient Responsibility Estimate:
Any fees collected at the time of service and any quotes regarding such fees are estimated based on the information available to the Center at the time of service. The Center relies on information provided by the responsible party regarding insurance coverage, information from the responsible party’s insurance company, and procedure fees associated with the CPT codes scheduled/reserved and provided to the Center by the patient’s surgeon. There may be additional charges, should the surgeon perform a procedure that is different from or in addition to what was scheduled. This quote is only an estimate for the surgical facility fees.
