Payments Due Prior to Surgery
We typically collect your insurance co-payment if applicable before surgery.  Upon request, we will provide you our “best estimate” of the amount you will owe after insurance pays, after contacting your insurance company and reviewing the amount they are most likely to pay under our contract with them, and based on what specific procedures your surgeon has scheduled beforehand.  No guarantee of payment is received from your insurance company.  Should your surgeon decide to perform an additional or different procedure, your responsibility may also change.

Filing Insurance Claims
Following your surgery, we will prepare and file your insurance claim for our facility charges with your insurance company.  (We do not file any claims for the surgeon, anesthesiologist or pathology.)

We expect your insurance company to pay your claim within sixty (60) days of the date of your surgery.  At that time we will provide you with a statement of the total charges for all procedures that were performed, the contractual discounts your insurance company received, the amounts you prepaid, and the balance, if any, you may owe.

Should we encounter problems with receiving timely payment from your insurance company, you will be contacted and asked to contact the company to get your claim paid.  Should your claim be denied or rejected, we will bill you directly for payment.


COSMETIC SURGERY - ELECTIVE SURGERY
Payment in full must be received on the day of service.

SELF PAY SURGERY
Self pay accounts must be paid in full on the day of service, if you cannot meet your financial responsibility, please call our Business Office at 766-1718 to make other arrangements if possible.
