When you have surgery, you may receive several bills. A typical surgery patient might receive a facility bill from the Surgery Center, a professional bill from their surgeon, and a professional bill from the anesthesiologist. Our billing coordinators may contact you via mail or phone to discuss your anticipated financial responsibility. The determination of your total financial responsibility is not complete until your claim is filed and processed by your insurance company.
Payments of all copays, deductibles, and/or coinsurance are due at the time of service. Self-pay balances are due at least five days in advance of your surgery date. Being a participating provider with most insurance companies, the insurance companies require that we collect these fees, as they are terms of your health care contract. Additionally, patients are ultimately responsible for all balances for non-covered services.
Due to the constant changes in health insurance it is your responsibility to know your health coverage. If you should have any questions regarding whether a certain procedure is covered or the determination of your financial responsibility, it is to your advantage to call your insurance company and find out exactly what your contract covers. Their customer service representatives will be happy to assist you.
