We accept most insurances but if you are unsure contact your insurance carrier to see if we are in network.
The Center for Same Day Surgery collects any co-payments, unmet deductibles, and co-insurance amounts the day of the procedure.
Please note that insurance amounts collected are an estimate; your total financial obligation will be determined by your insurance company and will appear on the explanation of benefits. If our estimated amount is less, we will bill you the difference. If our estimated amount is more, we will refund you the difference.
We encourage you to also contact your surgeon, anesthesia group and your insurance company if you have any questions about your financial obligations. In addition, please make sure your authorization/pre-certification for your surgery is on file prior to the surgery.
If you do not have insurance, you are responsible for the entire surgeon, facility, and anesthesia fees. You will need to arrange payment with each entity separately. The Surgery Center cannot accept payment on behalf of another entity. We will call you prior to surgery with the amount due on the day of surgery.
